The OU College of Engineering is adding new faculty members courses this fall to supplement the Atmospheric Radar Research Center’s new Radar Innovations Laboratory, slated for completion next fall.

The college is adding four courses to its existing radar program. The courses will deal with synthetic processing with a synthetic aperture radar, advanced electromagnetic design, radio frequency circuit design and microwave circuits, research center director Robert Palmer said.

The classes will be held in the electrical engineering department of the Devon Energy Center and the meteorology department of the National Weather Center, and the courses’ hands-on components will take place in the new lab once it's completed.

New faculty members also will also be joining the college.

Radar engineers Caleb Fulton, Nathan Goodman, Jessica Ruyle and Hjalti Sigmarsson all arrived in Norman with doctorates in electrical engineering, according to the college's engineering blog.

“The four new faculty ... were hired specifically to advance OU in the defense radar arena, hence, expanding the scope of radar research at OU beyond weather radar, an already proven area of expertise,” said Melany Dickens, assistant vice president for research and director of planning and operations.
