    The goal Introduction to modern millimeter wave systems. Define basics of active and passive components used in generation and transmission of millimeter waves. Explain the specifics and limitations of those components at millimeter wave frequencies. Present methods for analysis and design of quasioptical systems using Gaussian beam propagation, geometrical optics and geometrical theory of diffraction.
    The outcome Gain theoretical knowledge and practical experience in analysis and design of millimeter wave circuits and systems. Learn utilization of analytical and numerical methods, and modern CAD tools, as well as independent problem solving using computers. Acquire proficiency in critical evaluation of trade-offs between the design goals and in obtaining solutions that yield optimal performance.
