Centre for Integrated Radio Frequency Engineering (CIRFE)

Based at the University of Waterloo, the Centre for Integrated Radio Frequency Engineering (CIRFE) is a research group consisting of over 25 PhD and MASc graduate students, research engineers, and postdoctoral fellows. Moreover, it houses a state-of-the-art radio frequency (RF) test and characterization laboratory, and a clean room. CIRFE’s mission is three-fold. First, CIRFE aims to be a premier source of innovation, creativity and expertise in RF engineering. Second, the Centre provides a facility, a stimulating environment, and the necessary training for graduate students to successfully pursue a rewarding career in RF and other interdisciplinary engineering fields. Finally, CIRFE develops and fosters collaborative research with industry, encouraging cross-fertilization of ideas and promoting technology transfer.
