Topic outline

  • Welcome to the course Microwave Engineering II

    This course is closed. Thank you all for your participation.

    After learning the basics of microwave engineering, you can now apply your knowledge and start designing real microwave components and radio systems.

    Radio systems consist of passive and active components (such as filters, couplers, resonators, microstrip-lines, amplifiers, mixers, oscillators etc.) which need to be combined properly (remember especially the topic impedance matching) and evaluated for their performance (losses, non-linear effects, noise). In this course you discuss and practise the design of passive and active components. You will carry out computer-aided component design assignments using AWR Design Enviroment software, which facilitate the design of a small radio system that is part of your final project. The AWR software (v. 16) is available in the PC classes in Maarintie 8 (rooms "1174 TU4" and "1621 AS5") and in Maarintalo (room "219") - which are accessible both physically as well as through*. Alternatively, students can download and install AWR to their own PC, along with a 180-day student license, from (please mention prof. V. Viikari in the form). (*To access the workstations in the above mentioned PC classes please follow the instructions by the university found at

      You return your exercise answers during one of the contact sessions. Each student presents his/her answers (one problem at a time) to one of the course teachers. Based on this discussion, the teacher decides the number of points for the exercise. Grading criteria and a checklist for preparing your problem answers can be found in the attached PDF file, please read!
