Applied Electromagnetics

Course Code: WLS 5000

Academic Year: 2022-2023

Students learn the fundamentals of air interface between the transmitter and the receiver in a communication system. Students examine propagation of electromagnetic radiation in order to predict proper operation of a system under varying conditions, frequency and distance. Students study antennas to aim the signal into specific direction in a communication link as well as the frequency spectrum broken up into bands of operation. Students study transmission line parameters in order to make a sensible selection of transmission line for conducting power to the antenna with maximum efficiency. Students are trained with troubleshooting techniques for transmission line networks and path loss calculations for RF networks. Students also learn to troubleshoot transmission line networks at wireless base stations.
