Introductory Course on Satellite Navigation

Satellite navigation is widely used for personal navigation and more and more in precise and safety-critical applications. Thus, the subject is suited for attracting the interest of young people in science and engineering. The practical applications allow catching the students' attention for the theoretical background. Educational material on the subject is sparse, especially with respect to the practical side. This paper describes a combined approach based on experiments and theory. It was tested during a two-day course for college students visiting the TUM (Technische Universitat Munchen) called "Girls do research--The Autumn University at TUM". The positive feedback the supervisors received led to the conclusion that the approach is supportive for raising the students' interest in science and engineering.
