Abstract: The objective of the course is to provide the student with the basic knowledge on topics related to planets (both Solar System and exoplanets) and life in the universe from a broad perspective. This includes understanding the processes of planet formation, the structure of planet interiors and atmospheres, the concept habitability in general, techniques for exoplanet detection and characterization, methods for remote sensing, and the main characteristics of life on Earth and beyond. The course will make use of theoretical lectures as well as practical work and exercises to be carried out by the students. Up-to-date literature will be used to complement the topics discussed in class and the student should be able to comprehend the details of the techniques and methodologies used in such publications. The final goal is that the students acquire sufficient basic knowledge to carry out work in this field of research and, most importantly, that they learn to think by themselves.
