Is antenna engineering a good field? - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2010 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

NOTICE: The original RF Cafe Forum is available again for reading, and the new RF Cafe Blog is an active board.

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).

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!

    Kirt Blattenberger,


RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
