METEOR @ Nice


METEOR (Modules Experiment ThEOry Research) are interactive, research-based teaching modules where students learn jointly theoretic, numerical and instrumental skills. Most METEOR are related to existing or future international research projects and/or instruments. A non exhaustive list of projects/instruments you can work on in MAUCA can be found here.  All METEOR supervisors are research experts in the topics covered by the METEOR.

Each student chooses at the end of year y the METEORs that he will follow during year y+1.


The METEOR @ Nice are listed below and as a single pdf in the  2019 METEOR book.

The first METEOR, common to all students is at C2PU.

The other METEOR are organized in 6 main categories:

  • 1 Planetology
  • 2 Stellar and Galactic Physics
  • 3 Extragalactics/Cosmology/Relativity
  • 4 Signal-Image Processing/Numerical methods
  • 5 Astronomical Optics and Instrumentation
  • 6 Space-Industry

As a MAUCA student you will have to choose 5 METEOR in the list below (these METEOR are in yellow in the picture here). You will follow 3 of them in Master 1 and 2 in Master 2. Depending on your interest, the choice of your METEOR can be used to put emphasis on  Research or on Space-industry.

For a “Research track, the emphasis is on fondamental research. In this track, your METEOR choice should cover 4 categories in the categories 1 to 5. This kind of combinations warrants a large background in fundamental Astrophysics and related techniques.

For a “Space-Industry track, your METEOR choice should cover : Categories 4, 5, 6 and  at least one of the following METEOR related to space missions :  JUICEMICROSCOPE and  BEPI COLOMBO. This kind of combinations warrants a large background in Space sciences and skills required in Industry.

Examples of METEOR choices.
