The ECE department of the South
Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SDSM&T, located in Rapid
City) features a recently-formulated major direction for its undergraduate
and graduate students in the area of Applied Electromagnetics. Offered
courses include Microwave Engineering, Antennas for Wireless Communications
and Communication Systems for undergrads, as well as a variety of
grad courses focused on the faculty areas of interest:
Guided Waves and Material Measurements
Applied EM: The FDTD Method
and Computational Electromagnetics.
SDSM&T graduates typically
enjoy 100% employment in either the industry sector (Boeing, Ball
Aerospace, EchoStar, Garmin, L-3, Northrop Grumman, Rockwell Collins,
Sandia National Labs, US Air Force Research Labs, etc.) or in academia
(those who decide to continue in other schools), and the area is
ideal for summer sports, winter sports and nature lovers.
SDSM&T has currently three
faculty that focus in EM:
Prof. Keith Whites is a well-established
Professor and Endowed Chair with several books and awards: http://whites.sdsmt.edu
Dr. Thomas Montoya focusing on
loaded antennas and Computational EM: http://montoya.sdsmt.edu
and Dr. Dimitris Anagnostou who
focuses on reconfigurable and flexible antennas and antenna arrays,
and recently was awarded the IEEE 2010 John Kraus Antenna Award
from the IEEE APS society: http://anagnostou.sdsmt.edu
This School has a tradition on
excellent teaching, and an incredible reputation for an engineering
school in the Midwest – so those interested in learning check it
out. Current research foci include:
Antennas (Reconfigurable, Flexible,
Microwave Circuits (mostly passive: Filters, Baluns, couplers
Direct-Write "Green" RF Electronics and RF Harvesters,
Artificial Dielectric Materials, EBG
structures and Metamaterials.
The department has a brand new
webpage (as of Nov. 2010): http://ece.sdsmt.edu
, so expect more to come!
SDSM&T is the School of Choice
for Engineering in South Dakota and beyond.
