Astronomy 4X03


Astrophysics Data Analysis Project Course

One term project-based course covering the basics of modern observational astronomy techniques. Students will complete a series of projects in data analysis covering topics such as the fundamentals of image analysis, photometry and spectroscopy. We will also make use of the department telescope (funded by the Academic Science Fund) to collect data.

The development of this course was made possible through a Petro-Canada Young Innovator Award.

The course outline can be found here.

The course was first offered in Winter 2015. Below are a few of the beautiful colour images made by students using images collected with the department telescope.
