NSI-MI's Short Course is an online lecture series on a wide variety of introductory and advanced topics related to antenna measurements, near-field theory, and compact ranges. These lectures are pre-recorded so attendees can watch at their own pace over a four-week session held every spring and fall. We also provide the ability to download the lecture slides. Every Short Course session includes a live Q&A opportunity with the instructors to ask questions and/or discuss the topics in greater depth. Our Virtual Short Course is a great opportunity for engineers and technicians using and operating NSI-MI antenna test systems to learn more about antenna measurement theory and techniques.

You will receive information by August 15th on how to log into the NSI-MI Virtual Short Course platform. All course lectures and standalone modules are pre-recorded on video, with the option of downloading the lecture slides.

Your registration includes two opportunities to discuss any of the course topics at the live virtual Q&As with the instructors. Pick the time that most convenient for you or attend both! These times and day(s) will be announced in August. You will have have the option to get your questions answered by the instructors via email; details will be provided prior to the start of the short course.
