The Exploration Systems Design - Sensor Networks MSc program from Arizona State University promotes the development and growth of engineering-literate scientists and science-literate engineers interested in the use of robotics, data science and other computational tools applied to science problems in Earth and space sciences.


Its unique curriculum combines science applications with engineering knowledge and skills through engineering and science courses focused on Earth science, space science and astrophysics. The Exploration Systems Design - Sensor Networks MSc program from Arizona State University trains students to solve the some of the most complex science problems humanity faces using modern computational tools.

Career Opportunities

  • The US Department of Labor predicts that the economy will add an additional 63,000 jobs in engineering fields related to sensor networks and exploration system design (involving computer engineering, robotics and related fields). This is in addition to the 900,000 jobs already existing in the economy in these fields. 
  • The state of Arizona has a considerable presence from aerospace and other technology companies with high demand for skilled labor. In particular, local aerospace companies have high demand for students with direct experience and training in the space sector. The concentration in sensor networks is uniquely positioned to provide this training.
