About

In the Astronomy and Astrophysics major from  Macquarie University , you’ll develop the ability to independently and creatively solve problems by applying core physical principles, and relevant mathematical and computational techniques.

Overview

Astronomy examines the universe via the light received from it. Astrophysics uses the laws of physics to interpret astronomical phenomena, and determine the origin and evolution of the cosmos. Professionals in this Astronomy and Astrophysics field explore our understanding of celestial objects – such as planets, stars and galaxies – and the methods through which we have gained this insight.

At Macquarie University you’ll learn to manipulate data sets using standard astronomical software packages. And you’ll be able to provide analytical solutions to astrophysical problems through the manipulation of equations describing physical principles and by developing customised computer programs.
