MASTER'S DEGREE (LAUREA MAGISTRALE) IN PLANETARY SCIENCES
Become involved in the exploration of the Solar System. Explore planets, investigate strange worlds, travel in Space and Time, acquire knowledge to discover the unexpected and hunt for the unbelievable. Be part of the exploration of Planets, using the most advanced technology and travelling in the harshest and most remote environments.
Università degli Studi "Gabriele d'Annunzio" (UdA), in collaboration with the IRSPS foundation, organizes a Master Degree (Laurea Magistrale) in Earth and Planetary Sciences and Technology.
Planetary sciences, the study of planets and other
celestial bodies, is an exciting area of study that is constantly being
infused with new information from space missions conducted by space
agencies around the world.
Current and upcoming space missions include such diverse targets as Mercury, Venus, Mars, the asteroid belt and further afield in the outer Solar System, the Jupiter and Saturn systems and even the Kuiper Belt.
Planetary science is a diverse discipline that brings together geologists, physicists, biologists and engineers.
This Master degree provides a comprehensive knowledge of planetary bodies, through the study of planetary geology, remote sensing, theoretical modelling, astrobiology, spacecraft instrumentation and space missions development, in order to provide the skills necessary for graduates to participate in the dynamic space sector in Europe and in the world.
Thanks to the broad and diverse competencies inherent in planetary science, this degree can enable different career paths including work in academic institutes and research centers, in space-related industries, in national/international space agencies and in the fields of earth observation and global climate change analyses.
The Course will provide the students a view of the scientific subjects forming the corpus of Planetary sciences.
Geological and technological capabilities will be shaped by splitting the teaching contents among Geology, Astrophysics, Petrography, Astrobiology and Geomoprphology. However, Planetary Sciences are a discipline strictly linked with the exploration the Planets.
This implies that a scientist must be familiar with the exploration activities such as missions, instruments, landing sites, surface operations, the latter both robotics and humans.
We will create a scientist and a technologist with the capabilities to be involved in the planning of missions.
