MAUCA students

The Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur and the University of Nice Sophia Antipolis provide laptops to MAUCA students for their 2 year training.

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.
