PHY319 - Astronomy Project
Prof Clive Tadhunter (Module Leader)
This project provides an opportunity for astrophysics students to develop and exercise their skills and ability to undertake independent, albeit closely supervised, research. Students are able to select from a wide variety of proposals for projects, many involving practical observation and field work; others are essentially theoretical or interpretative or require the development of computer programmes designed to simulate a variety of astronomical phenomena. Many projects are collaborative and encourage students to work with others in a team, especially those projects involving a field trip to the pt5m telescope on La Palma in the Canary Islands.
This module is assessed on the basis of coursework. There is no end-of-semester examination.
