Specialization profile--Tera-hertz sensing
The profile Applied Electromagnetics focuses on the education of students on various theoretical and practical aspects of electromagnetic fields and radiation. The education deals with an extensive introduction to the electromagnetic theory which is necessary in most fields of electrical engineering, such as communications, antenna, radar, microwave engineering. The most useful mathematical tools for the analysis of electromagnetic problems and antenna are explained with parallel emphasis to their application in real-world problems.
The profile prepares for graduation in the Terahertz Sensing research group, which has expertise and actively conduct research activities on novel antennas for the following applications: space observation, medical imaging, security screening, on-chip antennas and time-domain sensing.
Within this specialisation, you will learn about the physical phenomena behind generation, guided propagation, transmission, and reception of electromagnetic waves, as well as the principles of radiation from antennas, typical antenna structures, and basic skills of antenna design.
