Learning Outcomes (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

After successful completion of the course the student is able to work in an antenna project at least on the competent performer level - i.e., the student is able to plan his/her working target-oriented way, generate reasonable results and he/she can justify and apply suitable approaches depending on the situation.

More specifically, the student is capable of justifying and applying relevant antenna and microwave engineering theories and antenna design and evaluation tools, such as CAD and/or measurements, in antenna design, evaluation and problem solving.

He/she is able to design antennas for a chosen application and explain the design principles.

The student has an ability to sort and combine relevant information from scientific publications and he/she is able to critically justify the applicability and validity of the found information.

He/she is able to effectively cooperate with the other students and work individually towards the joint goal.

The student is able to assess, debate, present, and/or report the results of the work.

Content (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Practical antennas studied in group project works: design, building and evaluation of antennas with measurements. The studied antenna types and applications may vary year after year.

Assessment Methods and Criteria (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020): 

Antenna projects and project working skills. The successful completion of the course requires active participation in the contact sessions. The assessment criteria are to be specified in the beginning of the course.

Workload (valid 01.08.2018-31.07.2020):
