The objective of the RF Systems Engineering graduate certificate program will be for students to understand the applications of signal processing for filtering, estimating, and detecting signals in a high-interference environment; the design and operation of microwave systems, including receiver and transmitter architecture, as well as antenna performance and function;  the theory and application of transmitting digital information via electromagnetic propagation; understand the function of microwave components and transmission line theory; understand the propagation of both bounded and unbounded electromagnetic waves. The certificate program offers an opportunity for industrial practitioners to enhance RF Systems The objective of the certificate program will be for students to understand the applications of signal processing for filtering, estimating, and detecting signals in a high-interference environment; the design and operation of microwave systems, including receiver and transmitter architecture, as well as antenna performance and function;  the theory and application of transmitting digital information via electromagnetic propagation; understand the function of microwave components and transmission line theory; understand the propagation of both bounded and unbounded electromagnetic waves. The certificate program offers an opportunity for industrial practitioners to enhance RF Systems Engineering skills without having to apply for and complete a Master’s of Electrical Engineering degree.
