Course content

This programme provides education and training for Physicists to become innovators in the rapidly expanding fields of radio frequency, microwave and millimetre wave engineering. These technologies are at the heart of radio systems used for terrestrial, satellite and mobile communications and electromagnetic sensors such as radar.

This programme will help you to develop an ability to interpret user requirements and component specifications, to engineer effective designs within the constraints imposed by the available resources and fundamental physical limits.
