During AMTA’s Student Day, students will participate in presentations and discussions related to antenna measurement technology culminating in a design and measurement contest with prizes awarded to the winning team. They will also have the opportunity to tour the vendor exhibit hall and view several technology demonstrations. As these vendors are typically looking to hire science and technology professionals, it is recommended that students bring several copies of a current résumé to share.

There is no cost to attend, but you must be enrolled as a University student in order to attend. Contact Dr. Majid Manteghi, Virginia Tech ( for more details.
