Applications now open for the 2015-16 Master on Navigation

16 April 2015

The II Level Specializing Master on Navigation and Related Applications (MNA) is a joint initiative of Politecnico di Torino and ISMB, with the collaboration of Istituto Nazionale di Ricerca Metrologica (INRIM) and the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UN-OOSA). It represents an effective answer to the work market demands in terms of high level technicians endowed with a broad vision of the navigation/ localization world but also with specific skills.

In order to be admitted into the Master program, applicants must possess a 5-year (10 semesters) university degree. The master is addressed to graduate students having completed a Specializing Master Degree or an equivalent title in Electrical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Enviromental Engeneering, Communication Engineering, Information Technology or related subjects. Written and spoken English is required (English is the official language of the MNA), together with basic notions in communication theory and electronics. To profitably follow the Specializing Master program, candidates should have some background in this areas:
• Principles of digital communications
• Principles of digital signal processing
• Basics of electromagnetic wave propagation
• Basics of software tools (e.g. Matlab) and programming languages (e.g. C)
Any basic knowledge in navigation is required. A lack of background in one or two areas is considered acceptable.

MNA offers scholarships to talented students from within and outside the EU. The scholarships will fully cover the tuition fees and partially cover the living expenses (the amount of the scholarships could not be sufficient for the living costs in Italy, students will need their own pocket money).

APPLICATION DEADLINE (for EXTRA EU and EU students): June 10th, 2015 11:59 A.M. (Italian time)
