Course Description

MSc in Astrophysics & Relativity



MSc in Astrophysics & Relativity is a course run by Dublin City University (DCU), Dublin. For more information about MSc in Astrophysics & Relativity at Dublin City University (DCU), please review the details below.

The MSc in Astrophysics and Relativity is a one-year full-time or two-year part-time course.  In 2021/22 this course will be offered via dual delivery, concurrently for on-campus students and off-campus online students. Students will gain advanced knowledge of astrophysics, general relativity, computational science and data analysis and the up-to-date skills required to understand the universe we live in. You will also learn a variety of computational and data analysis skills that are highly sought-after in a wide range of industries.

You can find out more from our academics below:

The detection of gravitational waves by the LIGO and VIRGO gravitational wave observatories and developments in electromagnetic based observations are contributing to the continued growth of the fields of astrophysics and cosmology, for example the direct imaging of the black hole at the centre of the galaxy M87 by the Event Horizon Telescope.  There is a need to increase the number of scientists with the advanced knowledge and skills required to work in these fields, modelling the behaviour of high-energy sources, predicting their electromagnetic and gravitational wave emissions, observing these signals, and analysing the corresponding data streams.

The course is jointly run by the DCU School of Mathematical Sciences and the DCU School of Physical Sciences and led by researchers from the Centre for Astrophysics and Relativity (CfAR).
