|Electrical Engineering and Computing
|Type of study
|bachelor academic studies
|Lecturer (for classes)
|Lecturer/Associate (for practice)
|Lecturer/Associate (for OTC)
|Telecommunications I, Telecommunications II
|Radio wave propagation characteristics. Modeling of propagation environment. Basic concepts of radio communication systems organization. Basic design concepts of modern radio communication systems.
|Student should master the basic concepts and the basic phenomena associated with the propagation of radio waves. Additionally, at the end of the course the student should have the ability to independently perform basic analysis of a radio communication system from the perspective of technology and organization.
