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.
The METEOR @ Nice are listed below and as a single pdf in the 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 : JUICE, MICROSCOPE and BEPI COLOMBO. This kind of combinations warrants a large background in Space sciences and skills required in Industry.
Examples of METEOR choices.
