Radio Frequency Engineering

This research essay has been written on the Radio Frequency engineering topic. Radio Frequency engineering has been of interest to me over the last few years. Having been an avionics technician in the military for five years has made me want to learn RF in depth. During these five years as an avionics technician I worked with Communication, Navigation, Radar, Displays and other electrical systems and subsystems. During these years I have only had the opportunity to replace and/or repair assemblies at a component level but never understood how the component internals function. Also,... View More »

This class concentrates on theoretical analysis and design of the antenna. Finally, the Advanced Microwave Circuit Design class teaches the student advanced electrical and Radio Frequency circuit designs and manufacturing. These classes in my opinion are essential for a good knowledgeable RF Engineer. This type of degree and education would take several years and definitely would require a career in this field to dedicate myself to this education. However, I believe I am determined enough to obtain the goal of being a Radio Frequency Engineer and pursuing it as a career.
Salary for RF engineers can be very rewarding. In 2006, only 46,100 RF engineers were employed in the U.S, making them the smallest sector of engineering as a whole. These low numbers of RF engineers makes them a very sought after individual specialized in this trait and also directly affects the average starting salary of a new RF engineer coming out of school. Reported starting salary offers for graduates in 2006 with a BS in Electrical Engineering which pursued RF career averaged $56,630 a year. Location is a very important factor and variable that determinant of salary. Typically salaries tend to be higher in West Coast areas and major metropolitan cities. The highest reported staring salaries for RF Engineers are in California, were they average mid $80s. This is mainly due to the cost of living expenses and higher prices of goods attributed the regions economy. Also, this may also include a starting bonus for new hires, this is not uncommon. These salary trends for RF engineers are likely to ...

    ABSTRACT Social engineering is one of the most overlooked aspects of information security and yet it is the easiest way for someone – usually an employee - to gain access to restricted information on a computer network. Attacks can be either physical or psychological; each can be equally effective in acquiring confidential information. Methods used to get information can be either human- or computer-based, with different psychological reasons why each method works. Protecting against social engineers boils down to policies that guard against their attacks, but these policies must also be c

    The United States of America is the largest producer of genetically modified (GM) agricultural products, harvesting about two-thirds (63%) of the world’s GM crops. Yet so many Americans are uninformed of genetic engineering’s presence in the food system, forensic science, developing transgenic animals, production of medicine, and genomics. More than 80% of the soy, 75% of the cotton, and 40% of corn produced in the United States are GM products. Because these crops are the source of some of the most common ingredients used by American food processors, most estimates c

    Genetic Engineering - What is it doing to us? Genetic Engineering is when scientists alter an organism's genetic material to eliminate unwanted characteristics or to produce new ones. Genetic engineering is used to increase food production from plants and animals and help dispose of industrial wastes. It is also useful for diagnosing diseases, advancement in medical treatments, and creating vaccines and other useful drugs. Some genetic engineering techniques include recombinant DNA, hybridization, and selective breeding of plants and animals (Microsoft Encarta Encyclo

    History Of Engineering

    1058 words - 5 pages

    The concept of engineering has existed since ancient times as humans devised fundamental inventions such as the pulley, lever, and wheel. Each of these inventions is consistent with the modern definition of engineering, exploiting basic mechanical principles to develop useful tools and objects. The term engineering itself has a much more recent etymology, deriving from the word engineer, which itself dates back to 1325, when an engine’er (literally, one who operates an engine) originally referred to “a constructor of military engines.”[6] In this context, now obsolete, an “engine” referred

    Jason Chang Genetic Engineering Genetic engineering is a new field of science that has helped advance the usage of technology in our everyday lives. Action Bio Science’s website defines genetic engineering as any of the four techniques: isolating genes, modifying genes so they function better, preparing genes to be inserted into a new species, and developing transgenes. The scientific definition that they provide seems a bit complex, but really genetic engineering is almost exactly what it sounds like, which is just the deliberate modification of an organism by wor
