MAUCA in 7 Slides.
- The first generation of MAUCA students (six students) were graduated in June 2018. All of them have been graduated with distinction and have been selected in PhD programs at OCA, IRAP, or CEA, or have been offered a permanent position in space industry.
- Benefit from an intensive training by research (70 % in Lab). MAUCA is based on small group, interactive, research-based teaching modules called METEOR. Most METEOR are related to existing or future international research projects and/or instruments.
- Follow a 2-month internship in a Lab outside France. Students’ travelling and housing expenses in foreign Universities are covered by the Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur and by some of the partner Universities. Students also benefit from Erasmus+ funding.
- Focus on international projects/instruments/space missions of the 2015s+
- Choose 70% of their courses according to their interests
- Work in close interaction with international experts.
MAUCA students are immersed in various fields of research in Astrophysics and Space Sciences during two years. They spend 70% of their time in Lab/Industry. This immersion takes the form of METEOR (Modules Experiment ThEOry Research). Each METEOR has typically a duration of 2 months.
MAUCA’s METEOR put students in situation of researchers or research engineers starting to work on a research/industrial project. Students learn jointly theory and practice in close and frequent interaction with supervisors.
Each METEOR is anchored to a specific research/industrial project or instrument, in which the METEOR supervisors are experts. The METEOR book can be found here.
