Course content

Surrey is one of very few institutions with the expertise and facilities to give you hands-on experience in RF and microwave devices, backed and informed by pioneering research in wireless communications, space technology, advanced gigahertz and terahertz microwave technologies.

This programme emphasises radio and microwave communications in 5G and beyond.

Programme overview

This programme addresses the great shortage of skilled radio frequency (RF) and microwave engineers, and the growing demand for conceptually new wireless systems.

You will learn about a range of modern theories and techniques, accompanied by topics on wireless frequencies and sizes of RF and microwave devices.

This ranges from the lowest frequencies used in radio frequency identification (RFID) systems through to systems used at mm wave frequencies that can have applications in satellite communication systems and fifth generation wireless communication systems.

Theoretical concepts established in lectures are complemented by practical implementation in laboratory sessions, with direct experience of industry-standard computer-aided design (CAD) software.
