Prof. Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Menzel


This certificate course is particularly appropriate as a preparatory course for persons who plan to take an extra-occupational master’s programme in the area of engineering and have no prior knowledge in the field of »Radio Frequency Engineering«.


The online part of the study programme takes place in self-study and in the form of group work. For the self-study part of the programme, video lectures with detailed information about the contents and an elaborated script are offered. The script has been developed especially for extra-occupational learners in regard to the didactic concept of Ulm University. It contains breaks for independent study, multiple and single choice tests, quizzes, exercises, etc.

Your mentor will offer online seminars in periodic intervals. These seminars will help you to handle the exercises and work on the learning topics.

An online forum for exchange with the other students will also be available.


It is strongly recommended to have basics of electrical engineering, advanced mathematics (complex calculus, basics of vector analysis), analogue circuits, signals and systems.
