Antenna Engineering

Course Description

This course covers the gamut of antenna engineering topics. You will explore the theory and practice of antenna engineering, including over 85 popular antenna types, applications, and electromagnetic properties, from basic to state-of-the-art. You will study a wide spectrum of frequencies, from 300 kHz to 550 GHz, with primary emphasis in the medium frequency, high frequency, very high frequency (VHF), ultra high frequency (UHF), and microwave regions. Plus, gain an understanding of communications, radar, commercial, and military applications, as well as related topics, such as radomes, antenna materials, computer modeling of antennas, antenna optimization, antenna noise, and antenna measurement techniques.
