Radio Frequency (RF) and Wireless Technology Lab

The RF Lab was set up primarily to provide high-end trainings in the field of radio frequency and wireless technology for new engineers as well as fresh engineering graduates who are starting out in their new companies. A total of RM10 million were invested for the purchase of high-end RF equipment and software for this lab, consisting of major equipment manufacturers like Agilent, R&S, LeCroy, and Spirent.


The implementation of the FasTrack RF programs using this lab will benefit the industries by providing their engineers and fresh graduates with the necessary technical skills required to be competent in their respective fields and at the same time help these new engineers to be “work-ready”.
