Seminar High-Frequency Engineering

Current Information

The seminar is planned to take place with personal attendance in the seminar room N4512.


In the framework of the Advanced Seminar High-Frequency Engineering, students will learn how to conduct a bibliographical research, and how to present their findings - both as a scientific paper and a presentation in the semestral symposium. The Seminar is divided into the following parts:

  1. Writing and Presentation Techniques
    The participants learn and practice interactively writing and presentation techniques, they conduct the bibliographical research on the selected topic supported by their advisor, and give a practice presentation for which feedback is provided.
  2. Preparation
    In the second part, the participants prepare a conference article (scientific paper with three pages) and a presentation.
  3. Symposium
    Eventually, the participants present their topic in the semestral symposium of the Advanced Seminar High-Frequency Engineering. Every talk is followed by a short discussion.


To register for the Advanced Seminar High-Frequency Engineering, you have to find an advisor first (see the list of topics below). You have to find and contact the advisor first. When he/she accepts to advise you, you have to send an e-mail to stating the topic and advisor. The registration in TUMOnline is necessary, but not sufficient! The number of participants is limited and the first-come first-served principle is applied.

Undergraduate Students

Undergraduate students may participate by preponing the Advanced Seminar from the master program. There are many advantages: the expert knowledge gained on the topic can be used for a possible Bachelor's thesis. In addition, conducting a bibliographical research, writing a scientific article and giving a presentation are also part of the Bachelor's thesis project. Our Advanced Seminar prepares for these tasks.

Proposed Topics

Students are encouraged to address any supervisor with their own topic suggestions. A list of proposed topics can be found below.
