The Earth, Planetary, and Space Sciences Institute (EPSSI) facilitates and promotes research and education in interdisciplinary areas spanning Earth and its ecosystems to the reaches of intergalactic space. Thirty two faculty, representing eight different departments, are members of EPSSI. Through EPSSI, students pursue the PhD program in Atmospheric Sciences as well as a minor in Remote Sensing.  EPPSI's goals are to work by consensus to promote Earth, planetary and space sciences at Michigan Technological University, through interdisciplinary coursework, programs, group funding efforts, and seminars.
