Navigation studies prepare students to be high quality professionals responsible for the operation of navigation systems and air traffic management.
Civilian full-time and extramural first degree courses offer the following specialisations:
  • the operation of airport navigation infrastructure,
  • air traffic management.
Military full-time first degree courses offer the following specialisations:
  • navigation,
  • air traffic management.

A navigation major graduate is awarded the title of engineer, in accordance with the completed specialisation. A first-degree graduate has a university diploma and the professional qualifications to serve in institutions related to air transport and its operation, according to the completed specialisation. He also has a theoretical background to work in research teams related to air, land, sea navigation, and air traffic services.

A first-degree graduate of the Operation of airport ground infrastructure specialisation has extensive knowledge of the theoretical basis of navigation and radio-navigation, the construction and operation of ground-based airport infrastructure, and skills in the operation of radio navigation equipment and systems, especially those found in airports.

The first-degree graduate of the Operation of airport navigation infrastructure specialisation has the following knowledge and skills:
  • the basics of higher mathematics, focusing mainly on the description and mathematical analysis and interpretation of issues related to navigation,
  • extensive knowledge of physics, mechanics, automation, electronics, and information technology,
  • active use of English in everyday life,
  • knowledge of airport functioning and the elements of airport infrastructure and navigation,
  • the construction of modern aviation ground equipment, radio navigation, and lighting systems, and their use in en-route and terminal navigation,
  • the use of satellite navigation systems in support of other types of navigation systems,
  • the construction, purpose, technical capabilities, and the use of radar systems,
  • knowledge of radio and telecommunications equipment; their characteristics and limitations and the ability to use them,
  • the location of faults in operational equipment and the procedures on their removal.

A first-degree graduate with a specialisation in air traffic management has extensive knowledge of airspace management systems, the organisation and flow of air traffic control, and skills in controlling air traffic with the use of radiolocation and radio telecommunication equipment and systems.

A graduate has the following knowledge and skills:
  • knowledge of the methods and procedures for air traffic control,
  • knowledge of the organisation and procedures of air traffic and air procedures in civil and military aviation,
  • active use of English in everyday life,
  • construction, purpose, and technical capabilities of radar systems and their use in air traffic management,
  • the use of satellite navigation systems to monitor air traffic,
  • knowledge of radio and telecommunications equipment, their characteristics and limitations, and ability to use them,
  • knowledge of the rules of conduct in emergency situations related to aircraft safety,
  • knowledge of contemporary theories of aviation safety and aviation hazard identification,
  • knowledge of the fundamental principles of domestic and international aviation law and the role of international aviation organisations in the development of air transport,
  • knowledge of airport functioning as well as managing their business.
Navigation studies prepare graduates for work in the following:
  • air traffic management organisations,
  • research and implementation teams related to the development of navigation issues,
  • state aviation authority entities,
