  • Combination of Simulations and Measurements in Antenna Design

    CST is proud to partner with Microwave Vision Group (MVG), the Politecnico di Torino and the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM) in presenting the new European School of Antennas course “Combination of Simulations and Measurements in Antenna Design”. The course will be held in the week of November 13 – 17, 2017 at the Dassault Systèmes and MVG offices in Paris, France.

    Both simulation and measurement are routine procedures in antenna design, but typically in different phases of the workflow. The aim of this course is to integrate these two aspects of antenna design to make the process more efficient, reduce cost and improve speed and performance.

    This course will focus on the practical knowledge necessary to achieve this goal, including ample hands-on training. It will cover antenna design, rapid prototyping and experimental verification. The theoretical background of the different approaches will be provided in order to ensure attendees’ understanding of applications.

    If you are a member of a non-profit institution, please make a note in the remarks field of the registration form in order to receive the reduced price.

    By registering for this course, you agree that your registration information will be shared with the other organizers of the event.

    • Course Details

      The course is under the academic responsibility of Prof. G. Vecchi (Politecnico di Torino, Italy) and Prof. Manuel Sierra Castaner (Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Spain), and will be jointly organized with Lars Foged (MVG, Italy and France), Jerome Mollet and Dr. Marc Rütschlin (CST – Computer Simulation Technology, Germany and France).

      The course organizers and instructors are experts from academia and industry who have been among the first worldwide to propose and research this process, and have spearheaded its practical application using commercial, high-end, widely used products.

    • What is ESoA?

      "The European School of Antennas (ESoA) is a geographically distributed post graduate school that has the objective to reinforce the European training and research in antennas and relevant applications. ESoA was founded in 2004 by a group of institutions in the framework of the FP6 Network of Excellence "ACE" (Antenna Centre of Excellence) and it is presently financed by a Marie Curie Action (MCA) project. The ESoA courses are distributed in the most accredited European research centres on antennas and wireless systems."
