Start to understand the complexities of Radio Frequency testing and the intrigue of simulation

This video course will introduce you to the world of Radio Frequency hardware measurement, test and simulation.  

This course will give you the underlying fundamentals to understand the work and begin your journey to being a Radio Frequency engineer.  

You will be lead through the course by an industry professional and understand what it takes to test and simulate Radio Frequency hardware.  We will look at the different types of test hardware used, when to use them, and how to interpret the results.  Two different real-life test set ups are discussed, showing how the work is carried out in real life, and their results shown.  After this we will move onto electromagnetic simulation, looking at how they work and common packages available.  After this I will take you through a real-life simulation step by step and show you how the results are interpreted.   This is structured in such a way that it makes understanding the complexities easy.

About your Instructor

I am an antenna expert specialising in tracking radar design and test with both academic and industry experience in electromagnetics and antennas. For 9 years I was an antenna expert in a leading aerospace company designing and testing many antennas for products and research purposes. My undergraduate degree is in physics and astrophysics from the University of Sheffield. I have a masters in astrophysics from the University of Leeds and a PhD in antenna design and test from Queen Mary University of London. In addition I am a qualified teacher with a PGCE from the University of Cambridge and I have taught in schools, universities and companies. To back up my industry experience I have 11 peer reviewed papers, 1 patent and have given many talks at conferences and Universities worldwide. For further information on these have a look at my google scholar page: sdt=0%2C5&q=tamara+sheret&btnG= I am passionate about education and continuing your learning journey throughout your life. For 8 years I was responsible for getting apprentices and graduates up to speed in electromagnetics and antenna test and design for their placement in the antenna group - I know what people need to know about antennas to succeed in academia and industry.
