Unmanned exploration of the solar system has been one of the outstanding successes of the space age. Most of these spacecraft, obiters, landers and rovers have been either fully commanded-controlled from the Earth or have been controlled by on-board programmes. If you are interested in understanding the challenges to be met in robotic exploration of the solar system and their solutions, then our degree allows you to be immersed in both the fundamentals of computer science and the very latest technological innovations. This degree scheme, one of only a few such courses in the UK, will expose you to the foundations of space exploration and will equip you with the skills that meet the requirements and challenges of the space industry, as well as the planning and development of future space physics and astrophysics missions. By studying this degree, you will be immersed in exciting developments surrounding the subject area, for example the department of Physics at Aberystwyth University are involved in the current European Space Agency ExoMars 2020 Project.

Trosolwg

Why study MPhys Space Science and Robotics at Aberystwyth?

  • Physics has been taught at Aberystwyth University since its foundation and it continues to be an innovative learning experience for all. 
  • You will be taught by experts in their field. 
  • Learn in state of the art facilities which provides a stimulating learning environment.
  • This degree will allow you to develop skills and capabilities sought by the main employers in this discipline and you’ll graduate with the competences necessary to undertake the career you choose.
  • The Department also offers a number of modules taught entirely or partially through the medium of Welsh. Further details may be obtained from the Department.
Ein Staff

Mae gan bob un o ddarlithwyr yr Adran Ffiseg gymwysterau hyd at safon PhD a hanes o wneud gwaith ymchwil yn eu meysydd arbenigol.

Mae gan bron bob un o ddarlithwyr a chymrodyr dysgu’r Adran Cyfrifiadureg gymwysterau hyd at safon PhD, ac mae gan y gweddill brofiad helaeth ym maes ymchwil neu ddiwydiant. Mae'n rhaid i bob darlithydd a chymrawd dysgu newydd ennill cymhwyster TUAAU, ac felly maent yn Gymrodyr Uwch neu'n Gymrodyr o'r Academi Addysg Uwch. Mae'r adran hefyd yn cyflogi nifer o staff arddangos a thiwtoriaid rhan amser a rhai arddangoswyr sy'n fyfyrwyr, wedi’u dewis o blith ein hisraddedigion a'n huwchraddedigion.  Mae ein cymrodyr ymchwil a'n cynorthwywyr ymchwil (y rhan fwyaf ohonynt â gradd PhD) hefyd yn gwneud rhywfaint o waith dysgu o bryd i'w gilydd pan fo hynny'n briodol.

Modiwlau

Noder: Y modiwlau a restrir isod yw'r modiwlau y bwriedir eu cyflwyno ar hyn o bryd yn ystod y flwyddyn academaidd nesaf ac mae'n bosibl y gallant newid. Maent wedi'u cynnwys yma i roi syniad o strwythur y cwrs.

Cyflogadwyedd

What can I do with a Space Science and Robotics degree?

Our graduates have discovered careers with the space industry and have gone on to specialise in space robotics or a related field of astrophysics or robotics.

Students could also consider these potential careers:

  • Computer programming
  • Systems development
  • Engineering
  • Teaching

On successful completion of this course, other graduates have pursued postgraduate study in the physics field.

Employability is embedded across all of our teaching and ethics. We instil these skills to our students:

  • research and data analysis skills
  • enhanced mathematical and computational skills
  • effective problem-solving and creative thinking skills
  • the ability to work independently
  • time-management and organisational skills, including the ability to meet deadlines
  • the ability to express ideas and communicate information in a clear and structured manner, in both written and oral form
  • self-motivation and self-reliance
  • team-working, with the ability to discuss concepts in groups, accommodating different ideas and reaching agreement

Further information:

You will be assigned a personal tutor throughout your degree course, who will help you with any problems or queries, whether these are academic-related or personal issues. You should feel free to contact them at any time for help and advice.

You will also have the opportunity to complete a Personal Development Plan (PDP) at Aberystwyth. This is a structured process of self-appraisal, reflection, and planning, which will enable you to chart your personal, academic and professional development throughout your time at university. By recording your academic performance, and highlighting the skills you already have and those you will need for future employability, the PDP portfolio will equip you with the necessary tools to plan effectively, develop successful approaches to study, and consider your future career options and aspirations.

Barn ein Myfyrwyr

I have found my course truly interesting and very rewarding. Undertaking an industrial year has boosted my practical programming skills tenfold, if not more. The lecturers are professional and helpful and the course provides a wide variety of subject knowledge. The first year of the course is a very nice, manageable introduction to the field of computer science. As a student who had no previous experience in the field I was rather tentative when first coming to University, but within a few weeks I had hit the ground running with the implementation of a challenging, yet rewarding project.
