Why choose this course RF and microwave engineering makes many aspects of our day-to-day lives possible, from mobile phones and Wi-Fi, through to radios and radar systems.

Here at Surrey, we’re one of the few institutions with the expertise and facilities to give you hands-on experience of radio frequency and microwave devices. Your teaching will be supported and informed by pioneering research in wireless communications, space technology, and advanced gigahertz and terahertz microwave technologies. This course places particular emphasis on the use of radio frequency and microwave communications in 5G and beyond, as well as across industries in the space and defence sector.

What you will study There is a high demand for skilled radio frequency (RF) and microwave engineers in the communications, space, aerospace and automotive industries, among others. On our course, you’ll learn about a range of modern theories and practical design techniques, giving you the essential knowledge and skills you need to become an RF engineer.

You’ll experience RF systems and circuits across the frequency spectrum, ranging from radio frequency identification, working at a few megahertz, through to mmWave frequencies (at tens of gigahertz), which are relevant to satellite communications and advanced 5G radio.

You’ll explore theoretical concepts in lectures,then apply your knowledge in practical laboratory sessions, where you’ll gain direct experience of industry-standard computer-aided design software.
