Our main aim is to continuously produce high quality research and graduates, through our professionally accredited undergraduate and postgraduate courses and research works. With strong number of qualified staffs, we are one of the leading communities in the region that focus on diverse areas of communication engineering, including electromagnetic analysis, wireless technologies, RF & microwave devices, antenna technologies, radar system and satellite communication.
The highly-recognized works of our Research Interest Groups (RIG) – the Microwave Research Institute (MRI), the Wireless Communication Technology Research Group (WICOT), the Antenna Research Centre (ARC), the Photonic Research Group (PRG) and the Applied Electromagnetic Research Group (AERG) - feed directly into our teaching, which will benefit our students significantly as they will be exposed with the latest development in the respective fields by our highly reputable research teams.
Our collaborations with industries and other local and international institutions show that we are aware and committed to the latest needs and trends of our research fields.
Through our research activities, we emphasize on solving real engineering problems through theoretical and practical works, by adopting the appropriate scientific research methods. As to ensure continuous skill development and learning experience, our researchers are actively involved in the following fields of interest:
Antenna and Propagation
Space Science and Satellite Engineering
High Frequency Technology and Devices
Radio Frequency (RF) for Bio-Medical System
Electromagnetism, Microelectronics and Opto-Electronics
Filter Synthesis and RF Design
Microwave Metrology and Measurement
Wireless, Mobile and Broadband Technology
Telecommunications and Signal Processing
Furthermore, the creation of the centre of excellence, Microwave Research Institute (MRI) to spearhead research and consultancy in areas related to high frequency engineering, microwave and wireless technology has further enhanced research activities among all members in the centre.
Research Laboratories/ Research Interest Group
Our research interest groups (RIG) are actively involved in the following fields of interest, such as:
The Antenna Research Centre (ARC) mainly focuses in designing, developing and testing various types of antennas for wireless & communication applications with emphasis on RFID system, broadband and ultra wide band (UWB), satellite beam shaping and beam forming, Wi-Fi and WLAN technology, aperture antennas, and many more.
There are many specialized RF and antenna equipment/ tools housed in the lab:
|2.||Wireless Communication Technology (WiCoT)|
Wireless Communication Technology (WiCoT) is one of the research interest group (RIG) established under Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Universiti Teknologi MARA (UiTM), Malaysia. It was established in September 2014 targeted at the emerging needs of the wireless and satellite communications industry. Wireless Communication Technology (WiCoT) focuses on research activities related to design, simulation, analysis and implementation of wireless and satellite communications systems. The areas of interest are, but not limited Multi-Input Multi-output (MIMO), Orthogonal Division Multiple Access (OFDM), Long Term Evolution (LTE) and Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) Systems, Wireless Channel Modeling, Spread Spectrum System and Satellite Communication Systems. Over the years, experience and expertise in these areas have been developed through teaching relevant courses, conducting undergraduate projects and post graduate research thesis.
|3.||Applied Electromagnetic Research Group|
Applied Electromagnetic Research Group (AERG) is a research group led by Dr Mohamad Huzaimy Bin Jusoh. The research group focused on the study of 'Space Weather' and Earth's magnetic field. Currently, AERG has 14 post-graduate students who are conducting research under the supervision of the research group.
|4.||Photonic Research Group (PRG)|
PRG was established in 2015 focusing in photonics and optics. The areas of expertise are as follows:
The faculty is equipped with sufficient resources, facilities and laboratories with experienced laboratory assistants catering for the current needs in the curriculum of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. In the faculty, Antenna Lab, Microwave Lab, Communication Lab, and Wireless Communication Technology Lab are well established.
