Centro de Astrofísica da Universidade do Porto
6 June 2012

Students day Poster (PDF) [6MB]

An informal meeting will take place at the auditorium of the building hosting the Planetário do Porto and the Centro de Astrofísica da Universidade do Porto, between CAUP's researchers and Astronomy students.

The event is open to any student with a potential interest in carrying out a degree in Astronomy in the upcoming 1 or 2 years, including students of licenciaturas and mestrados in related areas such as Physics, Mathematics and other relevant science or engeneering degrees.

Projects booklet available for download here.
