  • ECE 6353: RF and Microwave Electronics
    Prerequisite: Undergraduate electrodynamics and electronics courses
    A course in microwave engineering is desirable. The intent of this course is to cover the techniques necessary for the design and analysis of RF and microwave electronic circuits. The emphasis in the course will be a practical understanding of high frequency electronic circuit analysis and design. Mathematical derivations and analysis will be done in as direct a way as possible and computer simulations will be used to illustrate practical design considerations.
