Turn your fascination for space into a career involving astrophysics and radio astronomy. High-performance computing and broadband networking are central to modern astronomy and space science. The Astronomy major in the Bachelor of Mathematical Sciences or Bachelor of Science has an applied nature with a strong grounding in computing and mathematics. After building a base of knowledge in astronomy and physics, you explore the latest developments in astronomy and space science, spherical astronomy, celestial mechanics, theoretical astrophysics and mathematical physics.

AUT’s Warkworth Observatory, which is linked to New Zealand’s most powerful super computers, has two large professional radio telescopes – the only radio telescopes in the country. It enables AUT’s Institute for Radio Astronomy and Space Research (IRASR) to receive and process enormous amounts of data from deep space, used for cutting-edge research in astrophysics and earth science. You have the opportunity to work with IRASR during your study.
