2The UCAS School of Astronomy and Space Science

 

The UCAS School of Astronomy and Space Science was founded in June 2015 by NAOC with the help of nine supporting institutes, its Dean being the director of NAOC.  The School of Astronomy and Space Science already organises course teaching for roughly 150 graduate students, and about 20 third-year and forth-year undergraduates who intend to graduate as astronomy majors.  

The School intends to develop well-rounded students with not only theoretical understanding but also creative imaginations and practical skills.  The main Yanqihu campus will host a substantial teaching telescope and laboratories for building both optical and radio instruments.
