Electrical Engineering

Radio Frequency and Microwave (RFMW) Graduate Certificate

Why Choose Radio Frequency and Microwave?

Radio frequency and microwave engineering is the foundation stone of modern communications and is becoming more pervasive in the commercial sector as well as in defense systems. The technology you will study covers all aspects of devices, circuits, and systems operated in the RF spectrum from 3 kHz up to 300 GHz, with broad applications in portable communication devices, radar, direct satellite broadcast, global positioning system, RFID, and remote sensing. This field also shows great potential in applications of 5G communication at both transport and network levels.

The RF and microwave certificate program will incorporate theory and practice to give you a solid knowledge of RF and microwave technology as well as practical hands-on experience. You will be trained in a highly specialized field with in-depth knowledge of math, physics, and general theory of RF and microwave engineering. Having completed this program will allow you to demonstrate immediate value to prospective industry employers and qualify for the Keysight RF and Microwave Industry-Ready Student Certification (https://www.keysight.com).
