Undergraduate Course: Electromagnetics 4: RF Engineering (ELEE10025)
|School||School of Engineering
||College||College of Science and Engineering
|Credit level (Normal year taken)||SCQF Level 10 (Year 4 Undergraduate)
||Availability||Available to all students
|Summary||This course builds on the Electro-magnetics material taught in third year and aims to introduce the student to design techniques used for RF and microwave frequencies. Overall it is intended to give students an appreciation and insight into RF and microwave design addressing antenna systems and offer important components in RF systems.
- Antenna Systems
- RF Circuits
- Key Parameters
- Design Challenges
- Advanced Systems
- Design Techniques and Tools
Information for Visiting Students
|Pre-requisites||Students should be familiar with Maxwell's equations, transmission lines and waveguides. An understanding of the Smith chart to solve transmission line problems is desirable.

On completion of this course, the student will be able to:
- explain how electro-magnetic radiation arises from conductors
- describe the nature of the electro-magnetic field around a conductor
- explain what is meant by "near" and "far" electro-magnetic fields
- use S-parameters to analyse multi-port networks at RF and microwave frequencies
- perform simple RF system design.
