The research units of the IEEC offer various Master's programs covering all aspects of space science and technology. Potential students will find a variety of programs depending on their specific field of interest.
Master in Astrophysics, Particle Physics and Cosmology
The Institute of Cosmos Sciences (UB) offers a Master's program aimed at providing students with advanced academic training within the fields of astrophysics, space sciences, atomic, nuclear and particle physics, gravitation and cosmology. It considers two possible pathways depending on the modules completed by the student: Astrophysics and Space Sciences; and Particle Physics and Gravitation. All the subjects are taught by doctoral-level researchers with extensive teaching and research experience from the department of Quantum Physics and Astrophysics at the University of Barcelona.
Postgraduate Program on High-Energy Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology
The Institute of Space Sciences (ICE, CSIC) offers a Master’s program of the Autonomous University of Barcelona (UAB) in joint collaboration with the Institut de Física d’Altes Energies (IFAE). This Master's program has the main goal of providing the basic tools to begin a research career in the fields of high-energy physics, astrophysics and cosmology. Since a PhD thesis is the first step in a student’s initiation to research, this Master’s program provides the proper education needed for students to commence an independent research work, which will eventually culminate in a doctoral degree. The student can choose among several modalities within the program: High-Energy Physics, Astrophysics and Cosmology or a combination of both.
Masters from the Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC)
The Polytechnic University of Catalonia (UPC) offers Master's programs oriented to provide advanced training in specialized or multidisciplinary fields. These programs are aimed at captivating the student into the research activity and professional training. Within the field of aerospace engineering, several masters programs are offered:
- Master's degree in Aerospace Engineering
- Master's degree in Aerospace Science and Technology (MAST)
- Master's degree in Applications and Technologies for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Drones)
- Master's degree in Space and Aeronautical Engineering
