It includes the pure science sectors of learning the space physics around the earth, the solar system, star system, galaxy universe, external galaxies, cosmology, etc, and studies and research the professional knowledge of applied astronomy and space science sectors such as astronomical period of restoration, astronomers, satellite orbit and attitude, satellite geodesy, space observation equipments and technology, etc.

Astronomy and space science is the basic study for improving the creative ability for fostering the core technology of the state-of-the-art aerospace industry and since such applications are endless, the demand is expected to increase exponentially in the 21st century. Especially, we are the only national university that provides the chapter of convergence science that studies and research the professional knowledge on the public astronomy science which can be delivered to the public in the science hall like the Civil Observatory.
