Course Overview

Do you need to quickly get up-to-speed with modern RF and microwave measurements at frequencies up to 40 GHz without having to search through endless online content, magazine articles and dry academic textbooks that all too often obscure the essence of the subject with complex mathematics?

This online RF and microwave measurements diploma course brings together key high-frequency measurement topics in one place and has been designed to provide a solid grounding in the principles and practice of common measurements made by RF and microwave engineers and technicians. Throughout the course, important concepts are simplified and explained in a way that conveys the essence of each topic without complex mathematics. The course includes a series of practical measurement demonstration videos using modern RF and microwave test and measurement instruments to help reinforce the concepts introduced.

Developed by PhD-qualified RF engineers with over 50 years combined industry experience, the course focuses on the essential real-world knowledge needed to develop your career in the fast-paced and rapidly changing world of RF and microwave engineering.

The course is based on a series of instructor-led classroom courses delivered in partnership with leading global test equipment manufacturer Rohde & Schwarz. Technical content has been continuously refined based on attendee feedback.

What You Will Learn
  • Understand basic principles of RF, wireless and microwave measurements

  • Describe key RF, wireless and microwave measurement parameters

  • Understand how to use a range of high-frequency measurement equipment

  • Reduce the risk of expensive test equipment damage, repair costs and downtime

  • Understand how to correctly perform common RF and microwave measurements

  • Better utilise test and measurement equipment features and functionality

  • Develop your problem solving capability due to improved understanding

Target Audience

The online course is ideal for graduates and new entrants to the field of high-frequency measurements. It is also suitable for those with industry experience but with knowledge gaps that need to be addressed. Students and job seekers will also find the course beneficial since it covers areas likely to arise during a technical interview.

Staff members taking the certification typically include engineers and technicians involved in making RF, wireless and microwave measurements and working in research and development, manufacturing test and production environments in the RF, wireless and microwave communications industry.

The course is also suitable for recent graduates or experienced engineers moving into the RF, wireless and microwave field, who need to quickly get up-to-speed with high-frequency measurement techniques in order to become more productive. In addition, the course will be of interest to managers working in a test environment who wish to improve their understanding of high-frequency measurements in order to better manage the test process.
