Introduce

The Astronomy and Space Science Major provides integrated and doctoral coursework through either joint guidance or team guidance and is taught by competent professors utilizing state-of-the-art astronomical research facilities. It recruits new students twice a year. There is also a journal club event once a week and an academic conference once a year to display students’ academic achievements. Students participate in government-run astronomical projects and conduct a variety of state-of-the-art research in the field. Not only can students get a degree, but they can also work with research leaders of different fields.
