ASTRONOMY HOMEPAGE

(Designed and maintained by Dr. Ilias Fernini)

GENERAL INFORMATION

Astronomy is one of the few branches of science that takes you back in time and outward in space. Whenever we take a look at the universe, we are digging back in time and see the universe as it was in the past. The study of the cosmos around us starts with the simple observations that can be made from earth and ends with the difficult observations made from out of space using spacecrafts and the Hubble space Telescope.

It is very fortunate that the department of Physics at the United Arab Emirates University has in its curriculum two astronomy courses. One is a general 100 astronomy class level for non-physics majors [Astronomy 50220100]. The second one entitled "Galactic and Extragalactic Astrophysics" [Astrophysics 50229493] is given once a semester as a special topic course for undergraduate physics students. Both courses can be looked through their homepages.
