Air Navigation Department


The department of Air Navigation Systems (ANS) offers bachelor`s, master`s, and doctoral degrees in air traffic management and aeronautical engineering. The objective of the undergraduate ANS program is to prepare students for careers in aviation engineering and related disciplines. The curriculum is rigorous and comprehensive, based in the physical and mathematical sciences. The curriculum corresponds to ICAO specification for Air Traffic Safety Electronics Personnel (ATSEP) training.

Graduates in Air Navigation Services Systems can use, create, produce and maintain air navigation systems and their components, be experts and managers, organizers of certification of systems, equipment and personnel. We use modern computer-based air navigation systems in GNSS, VOR, DME, ILS for training. Our training is grounded on fundamental and applied knowledge in the fields of satellite navigation, systems control, radar detection, aviation telecommunication systems, surveillance systems, avionics, computer science and networks, electronics design automation, intelligent systems, decision making theory, mathematical modeling of complex systems delivered in professional aviation English.

A student can choose one of three languages for studying: English, Russian, Ukrainian.

The term of studying for "Bachelor" degree is 3 years and 10 months; for "Master" degree is 1 year and 6 months.

There are many opportunities for employment in a wide range of private companies and in government research centers.

Also, during training, our students have an opportunity to take traineeships from 2 to 6 months in Eurocontrol (Brussels, Luxembourg). This gives them the best opportunity for further employment in the subdivisions of Eurocontrol. The proofs of this statement are stories of graduates on our web-site
