Projects at Planetary Research Centre

By studying with us, you’ll be involved in some of the Macquarie University Planetary Research Centre’s projects. If you’d like more information, please contact a centre member.

Undergraduate study

The PRC supports multidisciplinary degree structures, with the possibility of majors or double majors in Geology, Geophysics, Astronomy and Astrophysics, Engineering, and Environmental Sciences. Our degrees combine the possibility of doing a major with a strong industry focus, and research in fundamental planetary science.

Centre Staff co-teach a number of planetary-science units, including ASTR178: Other Worlds: Planets and Planetary Systems, and GEOS204: Life, the Universe, and Everything.

Take a look at some of the science courses at Macquarie University.

Master of Research degrees at Macquarie University

The PRC is committed to supporting integrated, multi-disciplinary Master of Research research projects, particularly those drawing on expertise across multiple departments. Interested in astrophysics and geophysics? Combine them. Want to integrate electronic engineering and detection of exoplanets? Let’s do it. Like to integrate traditional field geology, and satellite-derived remote sensing datasets? Come talk to us.

We offer logistical and project support to Master of Research projects within the PRC. If you’d like to know more about our projects and research opportunities, speak to one of our research centre members. Find out more about the Master of Research course at Macquarie University.

PhD
