Pääaine suomeksi: Radiotiede ja -tekniikka
Huvudämne på svenska: Radiovetenskap och –teknik
Radio science and engineering is the basis of everything that transmits or receives electromagnetic waves, such as wireless communications devices, radars, or wireless sensors.
This major provides you with the ability to do high-level scientific research on new electromagnetic phenomena and to develop components and systems, or to invent new wireless gadgets, for the present and future wireless world.
Upon successfully finalizing the Radio Science major you will possess thorough knowledge of fundamental and applied electromagnetics, wireless devices and systems, and the related mathematical tools. This includes thorough understanding of radiowave propagation and interactions of electromagnetic fields and matter.
Furthermore, you will gain the ability to use this understanding for creating new components and systems for future wireless sensing and communications applications that are superior in their operation and have novel functionalities. This includes the ability to use analytical methods and numerical tools in the design of new components and circuits and to measure and evaluate the performance of components, devices and systems. So, you will have the proficiency to translate your expertise into new technological solutions for environmental, well-being, and communications challenges in the industry and academia.
