Systems Engineering is the school's newest and fastest growing focus area. Through this initiative, we are building the capacity to design and build a wide array of instruments to enable scientific research on Earth and in space. Our research teams are involved in both component development and system integration. Current projects fall into three broad categories: astronomical instrumentation, sensors and cameras for remote sensing and in situ characterization of planetary surfaces, and environmental robotics systems for a variety of terrestrial and space applications. Visit our Space Missions page for a full listing of the school's current space missions and instruments.
