Welcome to the Research Institute for Microwave and Millimeter-Wave Studies (RIMMS) at National University of Sciences & Technology (NUST), Islamabad. The RF and Microwave field has a significant advancement in last few years and there has always been a great demand of high quality professionals in such a specialized field. Keeping this in view, the institute was established in 2010 with a mission of becoming a Center of Excellence for teaching, research and consultancy in the RF and Microwave domain. Being a unique post-graduate institute, it offers MS and PhD in Electrical Engineering with special focus on RF and Microwave domain. The specialized course work empowers the students to get a broader exposure to core areas of RF and Microwave domain such as electromagnetics, passive and active microwave components, antenna design and EMC/EMI. To that end, the institute is equipped with latest 3-D electromagnetic software such as CST Microwave Studio as well as state-of-the-art microwave measurement capability such as Anechoic Chamber for antenna testing, EMC/EMI Lab for electromagnetic compatibility and immunity measurements and microwave lab for passive and active components testing. The institute provide a healthy environment to students and faculty to carry out the research related to latest technologies such as antennas for LTE and 5G communications, inkjet printed antennas and sensors, on-chip antennas, MIMO antennas, MEMS based antennas etc. In addition, applied research projects from public sector R&D organizations also become topic of MS theses. A highest quality of faculty members guide students throughout their research work. The high quality research work and active collaborations are vital to achieve national prominence and international recognition in the field of RF and Microwave. It’s an exciting time to be an RF and Microwave specialist and I hope our website will provide you all the necessary information in this regard. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or comments.
