Objectives and learning outcomes
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 minor provides you with the ability to perform 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 microwave engineering minor you will possess knowledge of fundamental and applied
electromagnetics, wireless devices and systems, and the related mathematical tools. This includes 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. 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.
Content of the minor
There is one compulsory course: ELEC-E4420 Microwave Engineering 1 (5 ECTS). At least two elective courses are to
be chosen from Radio Science and Engineering related courses, see list below (10 ECTS), and two elective courses can be
chosen from any ELEC-E4xyz courses (10 ECTS). Total credits required: 25 ECTS.
While making your study plan, you should verify that you have the pre-requisites (i.e. the understanding of
electromagnetic fields, of electronic circuit design, and of relevant mathematical methods) needed for the compulsory
course (Microwave Engineering I). If you do not feel confident, it is strongly recommended that you choose relevant
basic courses, i.e. ELEC-E3120, ELEC-E4130 and/or ELEC-E3150, from the course list below to attend before the
