The Modules Experiment-ThEOry-Research are the core of MAUCA. They are interactive, research-focused teaching modules in which students simultaneously learn theoretical and practical skills. Most METEOR are related to existing or future international research projects, instruments, and/or space missions. All supervisors are research experts in the topics covered by the METEOR.
Each MAUCA student choose 5 METEORs, and a 6th among the METEORs abroad. The METEORs are grouped in six categories, represented here below. Each student must choose METEORs covering at least four categories.
MAUCA structures allows to build an à la carte Master, adapted to each student. The choice of METEORs puts emphasis on:
- Research: emphasis is on fundamental research. In this track, the METEORs should cover 4 out of the categories 1 to 5. It ensures a large background in fundamental Astrophysics and related techniques.
- Space & industry: emphasis on space missions. In this track, the METEORs should cover the categories 4, 5, 6 and at least one of the following METEOR related to space missions: JUICE, MICROSCOPE and Bepi-Colombo. It ensures a large background in Space sciences and skills required by the industry.
