Message Date From Subject 7012 2011-12-13 22:09:34 Thomas S. Knutsen OT: Good hands-on RF grad schools? Hello. This may be a bit off topic, but I hope it's relevant.
In about an year, I will have received my BSEE (bachelor Electrical
Engineering). I'm considering getting an masters degree and Rick KK7B
suggested some time ago that this may be an suitable question for the list.
Where may I find a good hands-on RF electronics grad school?
I would prefear to find some english speaking country, but since most
classes at that level is in english anyway, so other country's may be fine.
I would prefear somthing with microwave engineering, but most RF cources is
The uni. college I'm with now only have masters and Ph.d in micro and nano
science, localy the only avaible cource is highly teoretical, with little

Please avoid sending me Word or PowerPoint attachments.

You might want to check out my Alma Mater
I'm not sure what the program involves now but when I was an undergrad I
was a Research Assistant working on RF projects and I understand they
still have both thick and thin film Microelectronics labs as well as the
RF Lab. I was working mostly with HF and VLF/ELF but they did have quite
the array of microwave equipment and one of the Grad students then was
working with Microwave amps and mixers in the microelectronics labs.
We even have Lefse and Ludefisk in case you get homesick ;)

etc) find the industry leaders in your chosen field, talk with the HR
organizations of those industries and find out who they recruit from, that
to me is the best way to go since you get real life inputs based on hiring
in the industry of your choice.

KK7B wrote a rather interesting article on practical RF EE education in an IEEE publication - but I forget the schools that were illustrated in his article.
