Sun, Earth, and Beyond

The Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering Department combines scientific and technological excellence and leadership to explore the Sun, the Earth, our solar system, and the space beyond. We use observations, modeling, and theory to discover and explain phenomena that define our place in the universe, and address the pressing problems associated with global change. As part of the University of Michigan College of Engineering, we inspire our students to develop as intellectually curious, engaged citizens and use our knowledge to inform the public, stakeholders, and policy makers. ​
