Astronomy Major

High performance computing and broadband networking have become increasingly central to modern astronomy and space science. AUT’s Astronomy major has an applied nature and orientation with a strong grounding in computing as well as mathematics.

Students are introduced to the basics and the latest developments in astronomy and space science, spherical astronomy, celestial mechanics, theoretical astrophysics and mathematical physics, as well as the specialisations of AUT’s Institute for Radio Astronomy and Space Research, which include radio astronomy and space geodesy. This major builds on papers in physics, computing and applied mathematics.
