2nd European Microwave Student School

"Radar Techniques and Technologies "


When:                     Monday 9th until Wednesday 11th October 2017

Organisers:             H. Maune, TU Darmstadt


This year‘s European Microwave Week features the second European Microwave Student School for bachelor and master students from all over Europe. This year‘s topic is “Radar Techniques and Technologies”, spanning from Fundamentals of Radar technologies and hardware over RF system concept and signal processing to real world applications and implementations. The programme features experts from academia and industry and programme will enable a fundamental understanding of Radar techniques and technologies. The course will be formed by two intensive days of lectures accompanied by a hands-on design experience event on the third day. Together with the Doctoral School, students will build a modern digital transceiver. The best concepts will enter the Student Design Competition. Beside the lecture and training program, there will be a social event together with the Doctoral School on Monday evening to get in contact with other students and research fellows from universities. The School is also open to interested PhD students.

Earning Credit Points

The European Microwave Student School will offer certificates to all attendees for earning credit points within the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). If you need to have a written or oral exam please contact your professor well in advance for arranging the details of the examination process.
