I have a bachelors degree in Computer Science & Engineering and currently employed in s/w industry in Pakistan, but have no degree in physics. For long, I've been interested in doing research in physics, especially in astronomy, astrophysics or in particle physics.
Are there good institutes or universities in Europe ( Germany, Sweden etc) which accept students without any degree in physics to Masters program in astronomy or astrophysics or joint with computer science? If so, do they also offer financial assistance or some form of scholarship to such students to meet at least one's tuition fee expenses?
Where I can find some research article that some teachers are working on so I can contribute them? I want to help through my coding skills. How to found those teachers who are working on research based on astronomy and contact them?
