Department of Astronomy

The Department of Astronomy consists of approximately 10 faculty members and 50 graduate students and trainees, who work continuously on their research in astronomy – sometimes all day round.

 

The study of astronomy aims to describe various phenomena of space with physical concepts, and to deepen our understanding of the Universe. Objects of astrophysical study range widely from the active Sun, the evolution of star formation and planetary systems, interstellar phenomena, the evolution of galaxy formation, explosions and activity phenomena of supernovae, and active galaxies, to cosmology, the study and the research of large scale structures, and the birth and evolution of the Universe. The Department of Astronomy conducts cutting-edge research in the fields of stellar physics, galactic physics and theoretical astrophysics.
