The Master on Navigation and Related Applications is a joint initiative of Politecnico di Torino (III Faculty, School of Information Technologies) and Istituto Superiore Mario Boella (ISMB) with the collaboration of Istituto Nazionale di Ricerca Metrologica Galileo Ferraris (INRIM) and the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UN-OOSA).
The Master program is addressed to graduate students having completed a Master Degree (typically a 5-year curriculum after the high school) or an equivalent title in Electrical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Communication Engineering, Information Technology or related subjects. Written and spoken English is required, since English is the official language of the Master, together with basic notions in communication theory and electronics.
The duration of the Master program is 12 months (80 ECTS) including a 3-month period for pilot projects (internships). It provides an extensive background in navigation/localization systems as well as a detailed analysis on NAV/COM integration and environmental monitoring applications or a specific training on timing.
The teaching staff includes many internationally known researchers from Politecnico di Torino, ISMB, INRIM and from European Universities, but also experts operating in companies involved in navigation programs.
