Offer 1 with catalog number 4016120ENR for all students in the 1st semester at a (E) Master - advanced level.
This course introduces the analysis, the design and the measurement of electronic circuits operating at RF and microwave frequencies.
Additional information about the department, the research activities and much more can be found on the website http://wwwtw.vub.ac.be/ond/elec
Course notes cover the material, and are available both on-line and in printed format
Additional study material is available in the following books:
An independent problem solving and critical attitude are main skills for an engineer and are therefore mandatory for any item treated in this course.
To successfully complete the course, you are expected to master theoretic concepts
Since for an engineer practical application of the material is crucial, you are also expected to
This course contributes to the following programme outcomes of the Master in Electronics and Information Technology Engineering:
The Master in Engineering Sciences has in-depth knowledge and understanding of
1. exact sciences with the specificity of their application to engineering
2. integrated structural design methods in the framework of a global design strategy
3. the advanced methods and theories to schematize and model complex problems or processes
The Master in Engineering Sciences can
4. reformulate complex engineering problems in order to solve them (simplifying assumptions, reducing complexity)
5. conceive, plan and execute a research project, based on an analysis of its objectives, existing knowledge and the relevant literature, with attention to innovation and valorization in industry and society
6. correctly report on research or design results in the form of a technical report or in the form of a scientific paper
8. collaborate in a (multidisciplinary) team
9. work in an industrial environment with attention to safety, quality assurance, communication and reporting
11. think critically about and evaluate projects, systems and processes, particularly when based on incomplete, contradictory and/or redundant information
The Master in Engineering Sciences has
12. a creative, problem-solving, result-driven and evidence-based attitude, aiming at innovation and applicability in industry and society
13. a critical attitude towards one’s own results and those of others
The Master in Electronics and Information Technology Engineering:
17. Has an active knowledge of the theory and applications of electronics, information and communication technology, from component up to system level.
18. Has a profound knowledge of either (i) nano- and opto-electronics and embedded systems, (ii) information and communication technology systems or (iii) measuring, modelling and control.
