The IIAS Professional Certification in Aeronomy provides a practical education for the professional interested in upper-atmospheric research from research aircraft, high-altitude balloons, and suborbital spacecraft. Learn to study noctilucent clouds from research aircraft, design space instrumentation and continue your initial PoSSUM training with mission specific training for suborbital tomography missions. Courses include AER 101 (Suborbital Space Environment), AER 102 (Remote Sensing and Mesospheric Modeling), AER 103 (Airborne Remote Sensing of Noctilucent Clouds), and AER 104 (Aeronomy Thesis)
The IIAS Professional Credential in Aeronomy is a 16-credit certification designed for the student or professional interested in a career in human space flight involving upper-atmospheric research. The credential assumes an understanding of mathematics up to differential equations and familiarization with coding and modeling platforms. Prospective applicants must have successfully competed the requirements for AST 101 (Fundamentals of Astronautics). As needed, preparatory courses in MATLAB and Python are available. Upon completion of the prescribed courses, the candidate should petition for graduation through the link below.
