The Department of Astronomy and Space is one of the most recent scientific departments in the College of Science / University of Baghdad. It is the only department involved in this specialization in Iraq. It was founded in 1998. Since then the department has started to award the bachelor's degree. The department has also awarded masters and doctorates in various disciplines in astronomy and space sciences. 

The department prepares graduates of the department to work in all fields related to this specialization such as specialized research centers, astronomical observatories, scientific service centers, and various state ministries. The department also prepares students to be highly qualified in their specialization, in addition to working on various programs as well as training to be highly qualified in mathematics, physics and other related sciences in astronomy and space.

In conclusion, I wish everyone success in their endeavors to serve our beloved country.
