The exploration systems design concentration offers students a fundamental curriculum in geology, physics and astrophysics while providing tools that enable them to design and build hardware and software to achieve specified scientific goals.
At the heart of the program is a sound grounding in the fundamentals of physics, mathematics and chemistry. Upon that foundation, students explicitly tackle issues concerning hardware design and instrument assembly and, ultimately, how to knit these components together when conceiving the requirements needed for a mission or project destined for space or another planet.
As part of this degree program, each student will have the opportunity to learn how projects and missions are designed and planned, starting with the scientific drivers and then defining engineering specifications. All students are expected to complete a senior project that takes a desired scientific measurement and realizes the technological solution to achieve the observation.
