The mission of the School of Earth and Space Exploration centers on four points.
1. We conduct pathbreaking research on the Earth, other planets and space.
At SESE, our faculty, researchers and students seek to expand the frontiers of knowledge through the exploration of Earth, space, matter, time and life. More and more, successful exploration depends on engineering theory and practice to create technologies for scientific advances. Our programs explicitly emphasize the importance of technology in modern scientific research.
