The courses in this category cover a broad range of subjects and skills that relate to the principles, planning and design of radio networks and transmission links. The building of radio networks requires significant investment and it is important that they are designed to operate at optimal efficiency.
Even when using advanced software tools to assist in the design process, effective planning of radio networks requires a good understanding of radio principles and of the technology in use. Different radio technologies behave in different ways and these characteristics must be taken into account at the design stage.
