Organiser: John Crute, The Technology Academy, UK
Co-organiser: Markus Funk and Jamie Lunn, Rohde & Schwarz

The registration fee for this event is £ 40 (up to & incl. 31st December 2021) or £ 80 (from 1st January 2022 & onsite)

The aim of the EuMW 2021 Student School is to enable Undergraduate and Masters Degree Students to become familiar with a range of RF and microwave measurements using modern test and measurement (T&M) equipment. A series of technical presentations will introduce students to key RF and microwave measurements and best practice operation of T&M equipment.

Working in small teams, students will then use various T&M instruments, including vector network analysers, spectrum analysers and power meters, to perform a range of RF and microwave measurements. Students will also learn how to correctly care for and clean connectors and cables to improve measurement quality and reduce the risk of expensive damage to laboratory test equipment.

Leading test equipment manufacturer Rohde & Schwarz will provide a range of modern test equipment for the workshops, which will be supported by expert staff. Attendees will each receive a student pack containing various useful items. Teams will be assessed throughout the workshops and prizes will be awarded for the best overall team and runners-up.
