  • Development of optimization framework for planar microwave structures using Sonnet and Matlab

Development of optimization framework for planar microwave structures using Sonnet and Matlab

MSc level project, School of Science and Engineering

Description

The project involves development of numerical modeling and optimization algorithms, conducting numerical experiments, working with commercial electromagnetic simulation software packages, as well as experimental work (fabrication and measurements of antenna prototypes). The project prerequisites include basic knowledge of numerical analysis and very good working knowledge of Matlab programming.

Goal

The project will be conducted within Engineering Optimization & Modeling Center (EOMC). EOMC has access to all the computational and experimental tools (computational facilities, simulation software packages, fabrication facilities, high-frequency anechoic chamber, etc.). The project is supposed to lead (apart from the thesis) to at least two scientific publications, which may be a good start for students interested in pursuing an academic career.
