    Programme Description

    Astronomy and Astrophysics cover a field in considerable and constant development - the discovery of extrasolar planets, the rebirth of cosmology in relation to particle physics, the development of astrochemistry, in situ exploration of the solar system, space travel, planetary science at the interface with the science of planet Earth.
    The doctoral school offers physicists and mathematicians training in the interdisciplinary field of astronomy and all its methods of observation, measurement and calculation.
    It focuses on interactions with mathematics, computer science, optics, plasma physics, particle physics, the earth sciences, etc. to address, inter alia, the needs for development of powerful observation tools, both in space and on the ground, using a variety of advanced technologies (optics, metrology, cryogenics, control engineering).

    The leading French scientific university and 7th European university according to the Shanghai ranking, UPMC represents significant research potential.

    Over 3,400 PhD students and around 4,500 researchers and research professors are spread across approximately 160 laboratories and 20 schools. This research potential gives it important responsibilities in terms of teaching and, in particular, doctoral teaching. In the current context of the development of the society of knowledge, driving the economy of innovation, this area of concern is important for UPMC.

    The ambition of UPMC is to contribute to the development of this society by proposing, within its doctoral programmes, scientific training of a high standard accompanied by a diversified range of additional programmes of study on offer and personalised support for the professional plans of PhD students.

    These mechanisms, when put into place, should ensure that PhD students successfully graduated, creative and innovative, a professional capable of occupying positions of responsibility in the companies of the socio-economic world.
