‘Bridging Concepts to Practice’ Training Series

One of the key challenges in teaching Electromagnetics and Wave Theory course for engineering graduates is perhaps to visualize Electromagnetic Wave Theory and translate the related concepts into Antenna & Microwave Designs.

Our training programs are designed to enable the faculty members in driving an effective teaching–learning interaction. This training program will take you through a series of hands–on illustrative teaching–learning activities/ experiments bridging the theoretical concepts to the industry relevant application perspective as well as practices.

About this FDP
The program focuses on key concepts of Electromagnetics with application to Modern Antenna and RF System Designs, progressively building up the background, walking you through some of the basic principles of Electromagnetics from Gauss Law, Ampere’s law up to Maxwell Equations and various CEM solvers like FEM, MOM, FDTD, PO and using these techniques to design Antennas, Arrays, Metamaterials and RF systems. The program also caters to the needs of professors pursuing their higher studies/ research in Advanced Antennas and Microwave Designs.
Who can attend

  • Teachers with little or no prior experience of teaching Electromagnetic Theory, Antennas, RF & Microwave.
  • Teachers seeking design hands-on insight on RF, Microwave & Antenna and RF Circuit and system designs.
  • M Tech Communication students and faculties, Research scholars in Antennas/RF/MW/High Frequency areas
