Comments about MSc-PGDip in Microwave Engineering and Wireless Subsystems Design - At the institution - Guildford - Surrey

  • Objectives
    Computer-aided design is an essential feature of modern RF and microwave component development, and students are given extensive hands-on experience of industry-standard software for circuit analysis and design, as well as experience of electromagnetic simulation. The CAD sessions are enhanced through the laboratory sessions where the students take a design from the theoretical stage, through fabrication, to measurement and characterisation.
  • Entry requirements
    The programmes are intended for good honours graduates of mathematics, computing, physical sciences and engineering disciplines. Our normal entry level is a minimum of a Lower Second or equivalent; however, with industrial experience, we can be flexible in our entry requirements.
  • Academic Title
    MSc/PGDip in Microwave Engineering and Wireless Subsystems Design
  • Course description
    One of the key themes of the Microwave Engineering and Wireless Sub-Systems Design programme is practical design. It is well known that there is a shortage of RF and microwave engineers in industry, and the programme introduces a range of modern theory and techniques that will equip students to meet the demands of industry. The theoretical concepts of high-frequency planar circuit design, from components through to antennas, are established in the lecture and tutorial sessions and taken through to practical implementation in the laboratory sessions, and cover both hybrid and monolithic microwave integrated circuits.

    The microwave group is supported by a range of modern fabrication facilities, including thin-film, photoimageable thick-film and LTCC (low temperature co-fired ceramic), and clean-room facilities for physical examination of circuits at the micron level. To complement the fabrication processes, state-of-the-art measurement facilities, extending to 220GHz, are available for circuit characterisation.
    Programme length
    12 months full-time, up to 48 months part-time
