University of Surrey – Microwave Circuit and System Design – Guildford @ University of Surrey
Feb 23 – Feb 27 all-day

university of surreyThe University of Surrey in Guildford is running a series of short Professional Development courses. The university writes:

Courses can be given as part of a regular programme, organised in conjunction with a professional body, or devised specifically for the needs of a particular organisation.

Some of these courses can form part of an MSc in Electronic Engineering. Courses can be taken on a one-off basis or as part of the MSc via short courses.

For Microwave Circuit and System Design:

The Course provides an introduction to the essential principles of RF and microwave engineering, giving particular attention to printed circuits and guided wave transmission. To supplement the theory covered in lectures, there will be invited presentations from industry that will put the theory into the context of current industrial practice. Furthermore practical and simulated laboratory sessions are also included in the course to supplement the lectures. It is intended that the course should be a stand-alone course that will require only a minimum level of previous RF knowledge though some grounding in mathematics including matrix algebra, parabolic equations and some calculus will be desirable. The course material progresses to an advanced level equivalent to that required to an MSc module. This course can also form part of the Modular MSc in Electronic Engineering. Please contact the CE office for further details.

The topics covered will include:

• Printed transmission lines and waveguides
• Microwave semiconductors
• Microwave amplifiers, antennas and diode circuits
• Dielectrics for microwave planar circuits
• Printed passive microwave devices
• Microwave measurements
• MCMs (Multichip Modules) for microwaves
• MMICs (Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuits)

Discounts are given for IET and IEEE members.

For Emerging Technologies in Mobile Communications:

In this short course, we will discuss the principles of emerging technologies that have been studied in recent years and are about to be deployed in commercial products and services. A team of prestigious academic and industrial lecturer will present the foundations and the trend for widespread deployment of advanced concepts such as MIMO/OFDM systems, Cooperative Communications, Cognitive Radio, Advanced Air Interface techniques such as small cells (including femtocells, picocells and metrocells), and etc.

The course is intended for new recruits of telecommunication and related industries with an engineering or any related science degree who will work in R&D, sales and, and technical support. The course will be also suitable for those who might be interested in doing a part-time master program. So, there will be sufficient overlap between this course and our standard Mobile Communications A/B course. However, the presentation will be customized for industrial audiences with strong emphasize on the concepts and industrial applications.

Discounts are given for IET and IEEE members.

For Spacecraft Systems Design:

This intensive 5 day course provides delegates with an introduction to the engineering aspects of satellite and mission design – with particular emphasis on the design of small low-cost satellites.
It will be assumed that delegates have a basic understanding of orbits and spacecraft dynamics.

Through a series of intensive lectures and exercises, the course aims to give an introduction to the design and construction of spacecraft, showing how the mission, and the space environment itself constrain the engineering.

Delegates should leave the course with a knowledge of:
• The Space Environment & its Effects;
• Spacecraft Platform Systems & Design;
• Satellite Manufacture & Testing
• Applications of Small, Low-Cost Satellites
• Space Mission Analysis & Design

Discounts are given for IET and IEEE members.
