Abstract

Engineering technology programs are characterized by strong hands-on experiential instructions that prepare the graduate to be productive in industry with minimal extra training, once employed. For this reason, it is essential to introduce the latest technology into technology curricula. Currently, computers are applied in all fields, and in particular, in electrical and electronic related fields. Such is the case in Telecommunications Engineering Technology (TelT) in which instruction on antennas forms a major component. This paper describes computer-based antenna experiments in the TelT program at Penn State Wilkes-Barre. Computers are used in these experiments to facilitate the collection of large amounts of data and to convert the data from one set to another for different graphs.
