Discipline of Communication

Our main aim is to continuously produce high-quality research and graduates, through our professionally accredited undergraduate and postgraduate courses and research works. With a 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 Photonics 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:
