national technological university - 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.

Greetings Guest:

I know three or four people who have gotten Master's degrees from NTU and they have had no problems. All had been working as engineers while earning their degrees, so by the time they graduated, their experience in the field had somewhat minimized the importance of from which college the degree was earned. The situation is probably different if you go straight from a BS degree to a Master's from NTU, but that scenario is unlikely anyway.

While working for General Electric and then Lockheed Martin in the early 1990s, I took a few courses from NTU (via satellite) and got some really good instructors from U. Mass. and other places. I never completed my Master's degree, though (was going for a MSEE in microwave technology).

So, if the convenience of NTU is good for you and you already are working, then I wouldn't hesitate to get a degree from them.

I can only speak for UMASS Amherst, but they offer courses and a masters program via satellite/video. The degree earned is a Masters in EE from the the University. They treat it the same as if you were on campus.

    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...
