Case Study: University of Oklahoma

Oct. 15, 2020
The University of Oklahoma (OU) faces an ongoing challenge to recruit and successfully graduate enough students to meet demands for qualified engineers through its Advanced Radar Research Center and the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering.

The solution: To get more students excited about engineering careers in RF and help them better understand EM principles, Assistant Professor Jay McDaniel worked with Tektronix to devise a 10-workstation lab for experiential learning opportunities in OU’s EM courses. By purchasing a complete bench of precise, cohesive equipment from Tek, McDaniel ensured a smoother and more reliable experience for his students.
