Course Meeting Times
Lectures: 5 sessions over 3 weeks
Participants are expected to supply their own laptop with MATLAB® installed and have some experience with the use of MATLAB.
You do not have to be a radar engineer, but it helps if you are interested in any of the following: electronics, amateur radio, physics, or electromagnetics.
To generate student interested in applied electromagnetics, RF, analog, signal processing, and other (often tedious) engineering topics by building a capable short-range radar sensor and using it in a series of field tests. Students have a vested interest in making their own radar work properly, causing them to dig deeper into these subjects on their own volition thereby providing a self-motivated learning experience.
