Academic programs that bring opportunity

Just outside the nation's capital, we've built connections with government agencies and industry partners working at the forefront of scientific research. Combine those with our advanced facilities for getting real-world work experience and options for tailoring your degree, and our students have more opportunity to land jobs, internships, and research collaborations that really help them stand out.

Mason Scientist propels understanding of Mars with review of its whole atmosphere

Mars is one of the most studied planets in our solar system, second only to Earth. Signs point to the red planet once existing as a habitable world like our own, mustering intense fascination from scientists to understand the history of Mars’ environment and how it came to its present state. For the first time, Dr. Erdal Yiğit pulled these studies together in a single review to reveal Martian whole atmosphere couplings and interactions.
