FIRST LEVEL DEGREE IN ASTRONOMY

Didactic System
Courses and Teachers A.A 2006-07

Bulletin

For full details please see the Page in Italian

The reformed University system provides a Degree in Astronomy after three years of study.
The aim of the three year courses is to provide students with the cultural and professional formation needed to enter employment or to proceed with the second level studies.

More specifically the First Level Degree in Astronomy gives:

  1. a vast basic knowledge of the mathematical means needed to understand the study of physics and its implementations;
  2. a vast basic knowledge of the various fields of classical, theoretical and quantum physics;
  3. a good notion of astronomy and astrophysics, and a large overview of the modern research methods;
  4. an adequate experience of laboratory techniques, of the use of telescopes and of astronomical data reduction;
  5. the skills to use a language of the European Union, besides Italian, both for general exchange of information and for specific competences.

Didactic System

The Formative Activity is quantified by the University Formative Credits (CFU).

For most of the activities each credit is given as follows:

  • hours of lectures (including laboratory): 8
  • hours of individual study : 17

For laboratory courses and for those specifically requiring hours of training (as for instance language or informatics courses), each credit is given as follows:

  • hours of theoretical lessons: 7
  • hours of training: 7
  • hours of individual study: 11

Credits are given as follows among the formative activities:

  1. basic formation activities: 37 CFU, of which 35 for mathematics subjects and 2 for informatics subjects.
  2. specific activities: 98 CFU divided in 36 for experimental applied disciplines (FIS/01), 9 for theoretical subjects and fundamentals of physics (FIS/02), 9 for microphysics and structure of matter (FIS/03) and 44 for astrophysics disciplines (FIS/05).
  3. related or integrative disciplines: 18 CFU, of which 6 for chemistry subjects and 12 for interdisciplinary formation.
  4. disciplines chosen by the student: 9 CFU.
  5. final exam and knowledge of a foreign language: 9 CFU. 1 CFU for the language and 8 for the final exam.
  6. other formative activities: 9 CFU divided in 2 CFU for the foreign language, 2 CFU for informatics and 5 CFU for other activities chosen by the student.

While the first two years have a unique curriculum, the last year foresees different curricula or didactic courses.

Third year's disciplines are divided as follows:

  • common subjects: 27 CFU
  • subjects specific to the chosen course: 24 CFU
  • final exam : 10 CFU

The curricula foreseen for the third year are, at the moment:

  • General
  • Expert in applied optics
