Is antenna engineering a good field? - RF Cafe Forums

The original RF Cafe Forums were shut down in late 2012 due to maintenance issues - primarily having to spend time purging garbage posts from the board. At some point I might start the RF Cafe Forums again if the phpBB software gets better at filtering spam.

No pun intended (get it, a good field to be in?).

I've done system design for over a decade and have developed an interest in antennas from some of my Ham work. Is there much of a demand for antenna engineers these days? I have no interest in the commercial wireless realm, but would choose airborne or spacecraft antena design.

Anybody out there with direct involvement that can offer an opinion?

I have a BSEE from a northeastern university (3.3 GPA).

i would say it is a good field. i currently represent a major fortune 500 corp in dfw with budget approved needs for rf antenna design engineers.

would anybody be interested in pursuing one of these permanent opportunities in Dallas, Texas?

if so, please contact me at tony_myer@matrixresources.com

There will always be a need for an antenna design engineers, RF applications engineers and technicians. You have to understand that wireless communications “in general” have just entered into advanced technology chapter. Therefore, great need for Antenna design engineers around the world will continue and all the way into next century. As we move forward into "total" wireless world, there will be many type of antenna’s requirement to follow. So, my encouragement to you is to continue pursuing your goals, but keep your mind open, and even within wireless communications for commercial applications. You never know what will be next. Good luck!

Sincerely,
John Pereira
