Knowledge and understanding:
through the class lessons the student will acquire the basic theoretic knowledge of the guided electromagnetic propagation and of the electromagnetic propagation in free space; he will know and know how to use the analysis and design tools of transmission lines and of free space radiofrequency links.
Applying knowledge and understanding:
through the class practice exercises, related to all the program topics, the student will learn how to use and apply, in the frame of actual situations, the analysis and design tools of transmission lines, of antennas and of radiofrequency links.
Autonomous judgment:at the end of the course the student must be able to critically understand the behavior of transmission lines and of radiofrequency links and to evaluate the performances and the suitability in terms of the used materials, devices and frequency range. He must be also able to process data in order to verify the required performances.
Communication ability:through the class lessons and the academic debates, the student will acquire the specific terms used in electromagnetism and in the different propagation systems. At the end of the course, the student is expected to orally communicate the main contents of the course, including ideas, engineering problems and solutions. The student must also communicate his/her knowledge with proper tools, like diagrams, electrical schemes and actual description of the devices.
Learning ability:after following the course, the student will be able to autonomously deepen his/her knowledge in electromagnetism through specialist textbooks and journals, even for topics not investigated in detail during the lessons. This in order to successfully face future job or educational activities.
