    The design of a course on optimal dynamic state estimation is described. The accent of the course is on practical issues: How to design a well-functioning state estimator in a practical situation where we have to deal with uncertainties about the model that describes the physical process and the sensory system, and without having groundtruth data? The adjective “student-centred” refers to a number of characteristics of the course: students will have an active role, they are faced to real world problems that they have to solve, they are stimulated to work together, etc. The paper finalises with some experiences that have been gained with this type of education.
