and to apply their knowledge to practical designs using the highly efficient AWR design methodology.
The ease-of-use and powerful technologies integrated in the single AWR Design Environment™ sets
AWR software apart from other conventional design software and uniquely positions it for use
by students just starting out in the complex world of high frequency design.
AWR Student Design Competition in China
AWR recently co-sponsored the
University Student Design Competition in China at Nanjing Postal University and SouthEast University,
offering cash prizes to the first, second, and third place winners. The winning papers and an
interview with design competition winner Wang Lei from SouthEast University are available on
