Microwave Colleges

If you are looking for information on football teams, you could not be at a more-wronger place... 

Learn about IEEE's Project Connect, an outreach program.  Since 2014, Project Outreach  has brought undergraduate and first-year graduate students from underrepresented groups in engineering to the MTT-S International Microwave Symposium for professional development.  

Click here to learn about the IEEE MTT-S Graduate Fellowship worth $6000/year.

We've started splitting this page onto separate pages for each college. This will take some time, and we'll probably work hardest on the pages that have the most class participation (hint hint).

Here's a complete index to our information microwave colleges; be sure to check this list and not just scroll down below, as many of these colleges now have their own Microwaves101 page.

Some of the college links below offer contact information for professors involved in the field. It is true that many of these guys walk around with one khaki pant-leg accidentally tucked into a white sock, exposing a Birkenstock slip-on, but cut them some slack (or cut them some slacks?), they have some glorious things on their minds, which are about twice the size of ours!

Arizona State University

This came in from an anonymous Sun Devil fan...

I was reading yr list of microwave schools, and it boggled my mind that you would leave off Arizona State. It is one of the highest ranked EM schools in the country due largely to the infamous Dr. Balanis, but also has world renowned radar guru and author George Pan. Throw in UMass alums Jim Aberle and Elbadawy ElSharawy and you have a veritable team of microwave Super Friends. I won't even mention the 3 or 4 other average microwave instructors that round out the group.

Here's a link to Dr. Constantine Balanis' home page.

Here's a ink to the Electromagnetics, Antennas and Microwave Circuits curriculum.


Auburn University

Located in eastern Alabama, Auburn University's Electrical and Computer Engineering department offers research in microwave topics including microwave integrated circuits, microwave materials characterization, high frequency packaging and interconnects, acoustic wave sensors. We've heard they even have a small semiconductor fab line!

Cal Tech

You might have heard of this little school in Pasadena California. Turns out they conduct fairly extensive microwave research activities. Click here to check out their web site. Dr. Sander Weinreb is one of our favorite MMW MMIC authors, and he is one of their professors. His website is Dr. Ali Hajimiri is also at CalTech researching silicon for millimeter-wave systems. A few years ago Dr. Hajimiri coined the phrase that silicon is the "army of ants". Lately he has made the news applying the silicon infantry to T-rays.

Iowa State

This link was brought to our attention by Andrew (thanks Pal!) Their Microelectronics Research Center dabbles in all kinds of things, but one of their professors, Dr. Weber is has had a lot of industry experience in microwaves. His EE 514 course teaches principles, analyses, and instrumentation used in the microwave portion of the electromagnetic spectrum, wave theory in relation to circuit parameters, S-parameters, couplers, discontinuities, and microwave device equivalent circuits, RF amplifier design, microwave sources, optimum noise figure and maximum power designs, microwave filters and oscillators. Doesn't look like he missed many microwave topics, maybe he could retire someday and take over here so the Unknown Editor can be promoted to Towel Salesman at Nassau Beach...

He also wrote a text book:
Introduction to Microwave Circuits: Radio Frequency and Design Applications
Wiley-IEEE Press; 1 edition (January 9, 2001)
ISBN: 0780347048

We'll try to buy a copy and evaluate his efforts on our microwave textbook page. Here's some contact info:

Kansas State University

We've all been within six miles of Kansas, every time we fly over it at 30,000 feet, and we've heard they've "got crazy little women there..." oops, that's Kansas City Missouri... but Kansas is definitely where Dorothy and Elvira are from! Did you know that Kansas State is a great place to learn the trade! This just in from Matthew of Skyworks... Dr. Kuhn is the type of professor who is there because he loves to teach. He believes that to learn, students need to get in the lab and actually build something as well as understanding the theory. What a novel concept, huh? His students get to design cool projects like satellite downconverters and RFICs. His students have landed jobs at companies like Texas Instruments (we won't hold that against them), Motorola, Skyworks, Peregrine, Honeywell, Maxim, Garmin to name a few. Oh, and K-State, JPL and Peregrine are teaming up to putting one of his transceiver RFICs on a Mars scout mission. Pretty good for being stuck in the middle of the Kansas prairie. Here's Professor Kuhn's website. Here's link worth checking out on the Communication Research Laboratory, and another one on VLSI research!

University of Missouri-Rolla recently changed their name to better reflect their S&T mission. Thanks to Chad for pointing this out! "MUST" has organized an Electromagnetic Compatibility Lab (EMC) consortium which you can check out here. Say, they've got some great microwave calculators on their site, maybe we should hire them...

Montana State University

This just in from Kyle, a research assistant at MSU:

"MSU - Microwave and Millimeter Wave Electronics Lab, I strongly suggest potential students of the black arts microwave engineering to take a look at the program offered here in the Rocky Mountains. Current work of the lab includes investigations into waveguide-based power combiners with a future focus of micromachined devices suitable for submillimeter-wave applications and investigations into the development of radio-frequency integrated circuits utilizing commercial CMOS process technologies. Dr. James P. Becker is the lab's director and is currently in the process of preparing the NSF project - CCLI "Weaving a Microwaves Thread Through the Curriculum" to further strengthen the microwave presence in MSU's Electrical Engineering department. "

Here's a photo of an MSU probe station and PNA

Purdue University

We added Purdue at the request of Sean, soon to be an alumnus... thanks, we can't believe we forgot about this fine university located in Indiana 125 miles from the Chicago (home of the Blues Brothers) for so long!!

Sean says there's some pretty cool microwave research going on, even though the microwave staff is fairly young. They also somewhat recently (~2001) built the largest academic cleanroom ( If you are in a position to drool without career damage, check out the list of equipment that Purdue's nanofab has!

Professor Chappell's research group focuses on applied electromagnetics. This has taken his group's research in three distinct, yet related directions; advanced packaging, integrated sensors, and wireless sensor networks. If you check out their web site you'll realize they pretty much have all of the future microwave bases covered, including advanced packaging, anisotropic conductive adhesives, metamaterials, vertical packaging for mixed signals, laser assisted circuit manufacturing, integrated sensors, integrated and miniaturized mass spectrometers, sensor networks and antennas, adaptable motes for intelligent sensor networks, environmental monitoring, electro-textiles, high power RF, and passive intermodulation. What else is there?

Professor Chappell's group's specific stuff with some research links is here:

Shown below is Professor Chappell's group winning the Eta Kappa Nu Turkey contest in Fall 2005, raising money to feed distressed families a November turkey dinner with all the trimmings. A Solid Gold photo of a Solid Gold team! Why can't more microwave CEOs set a similar example? Probably because they are all Republicans!

There are several famous academics on current staff , who may be accessed from here:

University of California Davis

Click here to visit the UC Davis web site, this link was provided by knife-winner Morgan! UC Davis is located near Sacramento, CA, the state capital and home of the Governator! We borrowed this paragraph from their web site:

"The Microwave Microsystems Laboratory is headed by Professor Anh-Vu Pham. Our group is conducting research in RF IC and transceiver design, RF MEMS, microwave wide band gap power transistor modeling, and integration and packaging techniques for RF/microwave applications. We are developing and integrating RF components for wireless, optical, and sensing communications systems. We have recently extended our research interests to nano-electronic circuits and MEMS for chemical/biological sensors and biological/non-biological actuator systems."

University of California Irvine

Here is a link to some cool work rencently done at UCI:

University of California Los Angeles

University of Cape Town (UCT) (The radar group) (The group that assemble the plumbing for the radar group)

Traditionally a strong radar group in SA, offering a specialized taught Master's degree in radar. The "Mike" mentioned on the site currently is probably Prof. Mike Inggs, though the institution the site refers to currently is most certainly not the University of South Africa. Thanks to Tinus!

University of Central Florida 

Thanks to Jim for this suggestion.  University of Central Florida provides RF/Microwaves courses and degrees: topics include digital signal processing, detection and estimation, communication theory, cognitive radios and networks, wireless ad-hoc and sensor networks, remote sensing, satellite communications, microwave sensors, antennas, phased arrays and integrated RF, micro- and nano-electronics, solid state device modeling, ESD protection, acoustic wave and MEMS devices, power electronics, and thin film micromachining.

They have regional campuses located all over Florida, with a big facility in Orlando.  It's spring break that never ends!

Here is their graduate catalog in electrical and computer engineering:

When that link dies, here this one might be more permanent (you will have to search out ECE courses):


Here's some more info we cribbed from the UCF web site.  They really like to use a lot of capital letters, that's how you can tell it was not written by Microwaves101:

The Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (Electrical Engineering Program) supports a number of technical (research) areas in which a Master of Science student may specialize. These technical areas are: Electromagnetics and Optics (EO), Signal Processing and Systems (SPS), and Micro-Systems and Nano-Systems (MNS). The Micro-Systems and Nano-Systems area covers the typical Electrical Engineering topic areas of Electronics, Power Electronics and Micro-Electronics, while the Signal Processing and Systems area covers the typical electrical topic areas of communications, controls, and signal processing. All MSEE programs offer a thesis and a nonthesis option, as well as an Accelerated BS to MSEE program.  Students in the program receive a broad background in the various technical areas, while specializing in a research area of their interest.

 University of Colorado Boulder

Dr. Zoya Popovic is one of University of Colorado's microwave gurus, in the areas of intelligent microwave circuits and antenna arrays. Zoya has rock star status as a microwave researcher, her name appears on a million IEEE papers, and maybe half that many DARPA contracts. It doesn't get any better than UCB for microwave research, if you are a student or a Fortune 50 company!

Here's a link to the John Rogers center. They specialize in integrating organic materials with electonics.

University of Kansas

This information was provided by Kiran, a proud student of KU, where the mascot is the fearsome Jayhawk!

From the KU website... The term "Jayhawk" was probably coined about 1848. Accounts of its use appeared from Illinois to Texas. The name combines two birds--the blue jay, a noisy, quarrelsome thing known to rob other nests, and the sparrow hawk, a stealthy hunter. The message here: Don't turn your back on this bird.



So why would you want to attend KU to study microwaves? Here's some KU professors working and well known in the microwave field:

Dr. Chris Allen

Research areas:
* Microwave remote sensing
* Radar system design and analysis



Dr. Ken Demarest

Research areas:
* Computational Electromagnetic Techniques
* Lightwave Systems



Dr. Prasad Gogineni

Research areas:
* Radar systems
* Microwave engineering



Dr. Fernando Rodriguez-Morales
Research Area:
* Modeling of active and passive RF and microwave components & circuits
* RF IC design
* System-in-package and system-on-chip approaches for advanced radar sensor integration

CRESIS is a NSF funded center at University of Kansas that designs radars, performs signal processing with the goal of remote sensing of ice sheets. Unlike self-discredited drug-addled gasbag Rush Limbaugh, these people actually study the science of global warming.

University of Massachusetts Amherst

UMass has been educating the microwave masses for many years, including you-know-who. So how come they've never profiled the Unknown Editor in their Alumni Journal? You can learn about cow-tipping, shade grown tobacco, and perhaps some medicinal herbs at this ex-aggie college, where the brother of one of the FBI's most wanted list used to serve as president! They are smart enough to have already linked to us on their microwave web site: Click here! Check our our new page on the CASA Center, which is led by UMass!

University of Peradeniya

University of Peradeniya is located in Sri Lanka, the island-nation at the tip of the Indian peninsula that is inhabited by >20M people. The University annually accepts 2600 new students, with more than 50% female. The engineering department brings in 400 students each year, with 100 joining the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Microwave engineering is the specialty of Dr. Aruna Gunawardena. His web page can be found here. Below, Dr. G. discusses some of the capabilities and course work:

Although we are on a tight budget, over the past years I managed to develop a reasonably equipped microwave lab. Highlights are one Agilent VNA (13.5 GHz) with 3.5 mm calibration kit, a single HFSS + Ansoft Designer perpetual license, and a dark room equipped with an economy photo-plotter! With this setup, we offer a very practically oriented course where the students design filters, couplers, etc, fabricate them and then test them with the VNA.  

Recent acquisitions include a PCB milling machine (S63), a multi-layer press, pick and place machine, and a reflow oven.

Dr. G. is a fan of Microwaves101, and we're a fan of his, for pulling together a microwave education curriculum in a country that does not enjoy the wealth most of us take for granted.


University of Pretoria (UP) (Active circuits and microwave / mm-wave IC) (Pretty much everything else)

Two distinct groups: the EM group that does mostly passives (lots of work in filters and antennas) and my little one-man outfit for microwave / mm-wave IC and hybrid on-chip / off-chip design. Thanks to Tinus!

University of Puerto Rico at Mayagüez

Here's a college where you don't have to dress warmly, but it might help if you were bi-lingual. Dr. Sandra Cruz-Pol is involved in the CASA Center, which one day will improve our ability to predict ugly weather in your neighborhood. Check out our new page on CASA, courtesy of Dr. Cruz-Pol!
