The Distinguished Microwave Instructor (DMI) program
Through the DMI program, world-famous educators and engineers will introduce the history of wireless technologies, the evolution of modern wireless systems, and the cutting-edge wireless applications to be used in our daily lives in the foreseeable future. These DMls will also share their own experience of growth.

Being A Part of The DMI Program
The DMls will reveal the mysterious veil of wireless technologies and show you the long journey of wireless technologies from traditional applications 30 years ago (radio, TV and analogue mobile phone) to today’s portable devices and wearable/implantable wireless sensors. The participants will learn about the ground-breaking achievements that microwave and wireless technologies have made in human civilization. By engaging with the DMls, the participants will have access to excellent educational resources, touch on the evolution of microwave engineering and feel the changes in the world through vibrant technologies such as 5G/6G wireless communications, virtual reality, telepresence and automotive radar in unmanned vehicles.
