ELT-47466 Antenna Project, 4-6 cr

Additional information

Courses ELT-47436 Antennas I, ELT-47447 Antennas II, and ELT-47466 Antenna Project are intended to support each other.
Students should take Antennas I and Antennas II prior to taking this course.
Antenna Project -course is timeless and schedule of each project is decided when a team begins the project work.
Tentatively each project should last about 7 weeks.
The projects can be done in pairs.
Suitable for postgraduate studies.

Learning Outcomes

Upon completion of the course student is able to design, construct, and test a chosen antenna structure. Student is capable of applying antenna theory in specification, design, construction, and testing of the antenna structure. Student recognizes the main steps inherent in such a work, and is able to utilize software and equipments that are used in simulation, construction, and measurement of antennas. Student is capable of reporting his/her work according to practices of scientific writing.
