Advancing Communication Engineering Research and Collaboration

Empowering Future Professionals in Diverse Fields of Communication Engineering


Our primary objective is to maintain a consistent output of high-quality research and well-prepared graduates through our accredited undergraduate and postgraduate programs. With a highly skilled and qualified team, we are proud to be one of the leading communities in the region specializing in various areas of communication engineering. These areas include electromagnetic analysis, wireless technologies, RF and microwave devices, antenna technologies, radar systems, and satellite communication.

Our renowned Research Interest Groups (RIG) - the Microwave Research Institute (MRI), the Wireless Communication Technology Research Group (WiCoT), the Antenna Research Centre (ARC), the Photonics Research Group (PRG), and the Applied Electromagnetic Research Group (AERG) - play a pivotal role in shaping our teaching methodologies. This direct integration of cutting-edge research findings into our curriculum benefits our students greatly, as they are exposed to the latest developments in their respective fields by our esteemed research teams.

To ensure that our research remains relevant and aligned with current trends, we actively collaborate with industries, local institutions, and international partners. These collaborations demonstrate our commitment to staying at the forefront of our research fields and addressing the evolving needs of the industry.


Our research activities are driven by the goal of solving real engineering problems through a combination of theoretical and practical approaches, employing appropriate scientific research methods. To provide continuous skill development and a comprehensive learning experience, our researchers are actively engaged in various fields of interest, including:

  1. Antenna and Propagation
  2. Space Science and Satellite Engineering
  3. High-Frequency Technology and Devices
  4. Radio Frequency (RF) for Bio-Medical Systems
  5. Electromagnetism, Microelectronics, and Opto-Electronics
  6. Filter Synthesis and RF Design
  7. Microwave Metrology and Measurement
  8. Wireless, Mobile, and Broadband Technology
  9. Telecommunications and Signal Processing

Additionally, the establishment of the Microwave Research Institute (MRI) as a center of excellence has further enhanced research activities among all members of the center. This center spearheads research and consultancy in high-frequency engineering, microwave technology, and wireless technology.
