Microwaves and Antenna Engineering Research Group

Pioneering the analysis, design and integration of high frequency electronics devices and systems


A core focus of the Microwave and Antenna Engineering Research Group is the training of future analogue and high frequency electronic colleagues for industry focused or research intensive careers.

We have carefully organised a stream of Microwave, Antenna, and RF System related courses which provide a coherent coverage of all the major technical skills which are essential for accelerated careers in the related sectors. Our stream provides an emphasis on innovative teaching and learning-by-doing in the classroom and the supporting practical laboratory activities. Below you can find some information on the analogue and high frequency electronics curriculum we offer at Heriot-Watt University as well as examples of our teachings and laboratory activities. If you are a prospective student, parent or industrialist interested to discuss our teaching in more detail, we will be pleased to hear from you.


Feel free to contact Prof. George Goussetis for additional information.
