A Master of Science is a master’s degree that usually focuses on science, mathematics or medicine. Typical students can complete an MSc program in one or two years of full-time study.

What is an MSc in Navigation Technology? Navigation technology focuses on the skills and knowledge needed to manage and use satellite-based navigation. Courses may look at GPS, inertial navigation, integrity monitoring and other navigation techniques. The exact courses offered can vary from one school to the next, but examples include signal processing and electromagnetism, modern channel coding, inertial sensors and hybridization, spatial technology, astrodynamics and high sensitive receivers. The learning techniques used may include lectures, projects, discussions and research.

The courses in an MSc in Navigation Technology program give students strong communication and analytical thinking skills as well as a great understanding of complex systems. The skills and knowledge gained not only make graduates strong job candidates, but can also them be more successful in their personal lives.

The location of a school and duration of a program may affect how much a student has to pay for an MSc in Navigation Technology. For an accurate estimate, students should contact the school in question.

After finishing this degree, it is common for students to have opportunities at national institutions, research laboratories and large companies. Some scholars may even be able to use the skills and knowledge gained to enter a PhD program. In the past, students have gone on to become guidance navigation and control engineers, flight control engineers, lead avionics technicians, aircraft maintenance supervisors, guidance and navigation engineers, and navigation consultants.

Students may be able to take this program from anywhere in the world, because many universities offer it on campus and online. Want to learn more? Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
