Prerequisite
Electromagnetic theory, Wave propagation, Antennas and Semiconductor physics
Rationale
This course provides basic knowledge of designing of transmission lines and wave guides. The various modes of propagations through transmission line and wave guides are included. Students will become familiar with the usage of active and passive components of microwave systems. Measurements of various parameters of microwave systems are also part of the subject
Course Outcome
After learning the course the students should be able to:
1. Understand basic concepts and applications of microwave systems.
2. Design, analyze and solve problems related to microwave transmission lines.
3. Design, analyze and solve problems related to microwave waveguide.
4. Analyze, test and use various passive microwave components for different applications.
5. Design and implement the microwave layouts.
6. Design and implement the microwave amplifier, oscillator, and mixer circuits

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
