Program description

The Universe: an introduction to astronomy, cosmology, and data science

This course provides a broad overview of astronomy to give you an understanding of the evolution of the universe and its constituents. You will learn about the constituents of the observed universe; appreciate (and be able to explain) the important part played by the laws of physics in designing experiments and making observations – and interpret and understand them. You will learn about important data science techniques and explore their applications to astronomy.

You will discover the home of the Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) during your visit to the historic Royal Observatory in Greenwich (founded in the 1670s by King Charles II), and you will be able to stand astride the Prime Meridian, where zero degrees longitude is marked. You will also be able to carry out real astronomical observations using the optical telescopes in-house at the Queen Mary observatory.
