This program is aimed on fundamental training of specialists with significant experience in independent scientific work, and in practice of conducting real experiments and computer simulations in field of theory, analysis and application of modern models and methods of inertial, satellite and aided navigation systems.

Special courses, devoted to teaching effective methods for studying navigation, control and estimation problems, for applying these methods to problems of inertial, satellite (GNSS) and personal navigation, airborne gravimetry, biomechanics, robotics, form the core of the master’s program.

The program culminates in a Master’s thesis preparation and an oral presentation of the work at a public colloquium.
