The course aims to develop the basic theory underlying the radar system, focusing in the hardware. The students will learn basic radar concepts including the radar equation for different applications. Different types of radars such as FM, FM-CW, Pulse, etc., are discussed. Strengths and weaknesses are addressed as well as applications for different types of radars. Calibration techniques are also discussed. Detection of signals in noise. Typical radar transmitters and receivers.

Study of rectangular and circular waveguides. Design and analysis of passive components used in microwave systems: Power dividers, Couplers, Filters, etc

Study of microwave transmission systems. Analysis and design of amplifiers, oscillators and mixers used in microwave systems.


This course covers wave polarization, wave reflection and transmission at oblique incidence. It also covers transmission lines, impedance matching, Smith Chart, microstrip lines, two port network S-parameters, waveguides, antennas and radar sensors.


Capstone design course in which students apply the fundamental knowledge in electrical engineering to solve engineering problems considering engineering standards and realistic design constraints.


This course deals with the design of microwave transistor amplifiers and oscillators using S parameters. Different transistor amplifiers such as broadband, low noise, and power amplifiers are discussed. The course also covers the design of microwave oscillators using dielectric resonators.
