Course Catalog 2011-2012
SMG-8506 Antennas, 8 cr
Courses ELE-3506 Antenna Basics, SMG-8506 Antennas, and ELE-6216 Antenna Project are intended to support each other.
For students who want to further increase their knowledge about design and construction of antennas, it is recommended to take also ELE-6216 Antenna Project.
Note that Antenna Basics is given during the first three weeks of the 3rd period, Antennas starts at the middle of the 3rd period (i.e. after the Antenna Basics).
Suitable for postgraduate studies
|Study type||P1||P2||P3||P4||Summer||Implementations||Lecture times and places|
Exam, an antenna analysis assignment, and a modeling assignment. Exam is preferably taken by completing a set of tasks.
Principles and baselines related to teaching and learning
After completing the course, the student is able to explain principles of radiation from antennas. Student is able to apply basic skills in modern antenna design and analyze key parameters of common antenna structures. The student can pose elementary antenna design field problems and has experience on their solution with (numerical)simulation tools. Student is also able to find information from relevant literature and create a scientific report describing his work.
