Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering
The students analyse the basics of wave propagation, reflection and superposition of RF signals on transmission lines. They learn to design matching circuits based on lumped and distributed elements. The students are able to describe the operation of typical couplers and hybrids. They are able to choose optimal transmission line types and substrate materials. They know about the principles of RF measurement systems, e.g. the vector network analyser. The students will solve specific design and analysis Tasks in tutorial groups.
