EuMW 2014 Student Design Competition


Date: Wednesday 8th October 2014
Organisers: Marco Dionigi, University of Perugia, Italy and Maurizio Bozzi, University of Pavia, Italy

Also this year, the European Microwave Week will be hosting, for the second time, a Student Design Competition. The main objective of this event is to encourage students to become involved in the dynamic profession of microwave engineering and to apply their knowledge to practical design use. Competitors are required to design and if necessary construct and measure hardware solutions for predetermined design requirements. They will be given the opportunity to challenge themselves and other participating students for the best solution!

During EuMW 2014, three student design competitions across diverse technical areas will be organised. The presentation of the design solutions and prototypes will take place during the conference week, in a special event on Wednesday 8th October 2014. Required test equipment for the evaluation measurements will be provided by Keysight Technologies to the participants.

For each competition, the winner, as judged by the technical committee (based on the figure of merit published on the website of the conference), will be recognised during the EuMW/EuMC Closing Session and will receive the EuMW 2014 Student Design Prize with a value of €1500, sponsored by Thales Alenia Space. In addition, the winners will be given the opportunity to submit an article to the EuMA International Journal of Microwave and Wireless Technologies in order to share their design techniques and experience with the microwave community.

All doctoral, master and bachelor students registered in any one of the EuMW 2014 conferences are welcome to participate. The students must attend the conference to present their design for evaluation.
