  • Practical skills in constructing embedded systems
  • Confidently handle the English language.

Not mandatory but beneficial:

  • Knowledge of lab equipment (arbitrary waveform generators, spectrum analyzers, vector signal analyzers)
  • Practical skills in constructing hardware-​in-the-loop experimental platforms
  • Knowledge in THz communication
  • Experience in VHDL/Verilog, FPGA, or microcontrollers
  • Knowledge in ASIC design and simulation
