Antenna and Wave Propagation Course

7

Aim of the Course:

Introduce the basic essentials of antenna. Starting with the plane

electromagnetic waves and the laws that governs the propagation

between the transmitting and receiving antennas, the important

antennas parameters such as patterns, directivity and gain is

explained. The course covers the antenna family that describes

various antenna types, the electric dipoles, the loop antennas,

uniform linear arrays and the basic concept of antenna

measurements.

Learning Outcomes

At the end of the course, students are able to:

1. Describe and evaluate important basic antennas parameters

2. Evaluate the electric dipole antennas and loop antennas in

terms of its near field and far field analysis as well as the

determination of its radiation resistance, losses and efficiency.

3. Characterize the various types of antennas and it applications

4. Analyze concepts of antenna measurements techniques

Course Prerequisites

• Prerequisite #1:

• ELECTROMAGNETICS I (Electrostatics and

Magnetostatics) and

• ELECTROMAGNETICS II (Fields and

Waves)
