Do you want to become the expert in 5G and 6G wireless communications? The Center for Wireless Technology Eindhoven (CWT/e) offers a unique MicroMasters program that equals up to 15 ECTS, which you can use for the on-campus Master Electrical Engineering with specialization in wireless technologies (which normally is a 120 ECTS, 2 year fulltime on-campus program).

With the launch of the MOOC Microwave Engineering and Antennas in 2020 the new MicroMasters Wireless Technologies program was introduced. This program consists of two online master courses, the second  RF and millimeter-Wave Circuit Design has been launched in 2021.

Content of the MOOC in Microwave Engineering and Antennas

This unique Master-level course provides you with in-depth know-how of microwave engineering and antennas. The course combines both passive and active microwave circuits as well as antenna systems. Future applications, like millimeter-wave 5G/beyond-5G wireless communications or automotive radar, require experts that can co-design highly integrated antenna systems that include both antennas and microwave electronics. We will provide you with the required theoretical foundation as well as hands-on experience using state-of-the-art design tools.

The web lectures are supported by many on-line quizzes in which you can practice the background theory. Next to this, we will provide you hands-on experience in a design-challenge in which you will learn how to design microwave circuits and antennas. Throughout the course you will work on the design challenge in which you will design a complete active phased array system, including antennas, beamformers and amplifiers. The course is supported by a book written by the team of lecturers, which will be made available to the students. After finalizing the course, a certificate can be obtained (5 ECTS), which can be used when you start a full MSc program at Eindhoven University of Technology.


The lecturers all have an academic and industrial background and are embedded in the Center for Wireless Technology Eindhoven (CWT/e) of Eindhoven University of Technology, The Netherlands.
