Building a Habitable Planet: From Environment To Energy

The world is more complex and interconnected than ever. Building a habitable planet in such a complex world requires that we train a new generation of students versed in whole Earth systems. The goal of Rice University’s Department of Earth, Environmental and Planetary Sciences is to bring together the creative power of Houston’s energy, environmental and space industries in the context of whole earth systems to make sustainable progress on the landscape of environment and energy.
