Course Objective:

Students will able to develop an in-depth understanding of basic antenna fundamentals. The design and working of various antennas will be covered in theory as well as in the lab. Modern antenna concepts will be taught to students, which will be related to the existing and upcoming new antenna technologies. The radio wave propagation section will cover the different propagation models and the effects of free space on electromagnetic waves.
