The astrophysics and astronomy MS program prepares you for discovering new planets, exploring cosmology, and building space-flight hardware and instruments for telescopes and satellites. You work with world-class faculty on NASA- and NSF-funded space missions, seeking answers to questions about how our universe began and how it continues to evolve.

Work with world-class faculty, including theorists, observers and instrumentalists, on NASA- and NSF-funded projects, to discover new planets, trace the evolution of stars and galaxies, explore the origin and development of the universe, build space-flight hardware and design instruments for telescopes and satellites.

Prepare for professional and academic careers with a program that combines the strengths of science and engineering. You will work with faculty in the natural sciences and engineering to design instrumentation for exploration including digital systems and circuits, computer/controlled systems, analog-to-digital converters and solid-state electronics.

Combine your interests in exploration systems design and sensor networks with the strengths of science and engineering to prepare for professional and academic careers. Study computer networks, Earth-systems engineering, multidimensional signal processing, and information and random signal theory with faculty who specialize in the natural sciences and instrumentation design.

Prepare for professional and academic careers with this program that combines the creative strengths of science and engineering. You can study artificial intelligence, human factors engineering, smart materials and structures, and robot modeling with faculty specializing in the natural sciences, instrumentation design and systems engineering.

The exploration systems design program is a leader in engineering research, with combined faculty across a number of schools. Faculty interests range from the astronomical to ground-based exploration platforms using state-of-the-art facilities for instrument development and testing. Graduate students benefit from many opportunities in a supportive environment.

With this program's tailored approach, you combine two or more areas of specialization and participate in projects that investigate the great unknowns of the Earth and our solar system. This degree is designed for students like you who wish to enhance their professional portfolio.

Study the interiors and surfaces of the Earth and other bodies in the solar system. This is your opportunity to work with world-class faculty on NASA- and NSF-funded projects in state-of-the-art laboratories and in the field on any of the seven continents.
