|Professor G. R. Branner has been teaching and educating the future of microwave engineering for over 20 years. Over the course of his tenure, he has developed a comprehensive RF and microwave curriculum at UC Davis. The courses that he has designed and developed are described below.|
| EEC 132A
|RF and Microwaves for Wireless Communications||3 quarters, 5 units each including laboratory|
|EEC 133||Electromagnetic Radiation and Antenna Analysis||4 Units|
|EEC 228||Advanced Microwave and Antenna Design Techniques||4 Units|
|EEC 232A||Advanced Applied Electromagnetics I||3 Units|
|EEC 232B||Advanced Applied Electromagnetics II||3 Units|
The comprehensive treatment of the field of RF and Microwave Engineering presented in the EEC132 series places a large emphasis on both theory and practice and provides the necessary foundations for promising individuals seeking a career in both industry and academia.
Students are presented with an detailed analysis of electromagnetic theory and applications during the EEC132 lecture. These concepts are reinforced by a weekly hands-on laboratory experience in which students design, build and test passive and active microwave circuits using state-of-the-art computer tools and microwave test equipment.
An expanded description of all the courses mentioned above will be found in the course listings for the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering.
