MCET – Keysight centre for RF communication systems

about us

Keysight Technologies, one of the pioneering companies in the world having a strong expertise in wireless communication technologies had collaborated with ECE department to establish the Centre of Excellence. This is intended to benefit students who dream to pursue their research in the field of advanced wireless communication and RF system design. This would serve as a platform for students and aspirants to pursue their interest in the field of RF design.

Objectives of this Centre of Excellence are

 To offer excellent training and education for students in Advanced Communication and RF System Design

 To provide technology transfer and consultant services for industry and government

KEYSIGHT TECHNOLOGIES
