In brief

  • Type of diploma: Master of science degrees
  • Domain: Science and Technology
  • Mention: Aéronautique et espace



The Master of Science in GNSS, Global Navigation Satellite System, defines a satellite-based system that allows autonomous positioning and navigation of a suitably equipped user everywhere and at all times.

The Master of Science (MSc) in GNSS is a 2-year programme offering advanced education in Satellite-based Positioning and Space Telecommunications.

It aims at training students for the steadily growing GNSS industry.


Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSSs) have gained a lot of worldwide attention due to a significant increase in applications using GPS for positioning and navigation (aeronautics, vehicular and pedestrian navigation, location-based services, etc).

This international enthusiasm is confirmed by the worldwide development of other global and regional satellite-based navigation systems in Europe, the USA, China, Russia, India and Japan, creating a strong need for experts in this field.

The objective of this MSc in GNSS is to provide students with advanced skills and knowledge in the field of GNSS and its related applications, in order to prepare them to enter the highly dynamic GNSS and GNSS-dependent industry. In addition, the students will have a grounding in telecommunications, as both fields are strongly complementary.

An International Cooperation

The Master AS-NAT was developed with the support of the European Commission and the European GNSS Agency, GSA (7th Framework Program under grant agreement nbr. 248016).

It has been achieved in partnership with the Institute of Space Technology and Space Applications of the Universität der Bundeswehr München (Germany) and Politecnico di Torino (Torino, Italy), both recognized for their leading international roles in education and research in the GNSS field. These two universities also contribute to the MSc teaching and provide their international links with the GNSS industry.The MSc has also received the industrial support of Thales Alenia Space (France), Airbus (France), GMV (Spain), ISMB (Italy); as well as the institutional support of the UN.
