Radio engineering

T Technical Teaching


  • This course treats the subject of modern radio engineering and includes typical RF architectures and their characterizations, modeling, prediction and simulation of radio-wave propagation, cellular planning, systems-level aspects of modern radio network design.
  • Three practical lab sessions using typical RF equipment and measurement tools are offered.



An understanding of probability theory, random processes, and digital communications.


• RF systems : RF architectures for base-stations and mobile terminals, amplifiers and noise figure, receiver sensitivity, emission masks non-linear characterization of RF components.
• Propagation Modelling and Simulation : Models for path loss, shadowing, multipath propagation. Statistical characterizations. Time and frequency-selective properties of radio transmission, prediction tools.
• Cellular Architectures : Link budget analysis, cellular coverage, duplexing strategies, multiple-access methods, network topologies, hand-over strategies.
