It is quite difficult to perform real time experiments in some specialized areas of engineering, which require sophisticated equipments and skilled manpower. The unavailability of good teachers with required expertise is another bottleneck in this respect. The idea of virtual laboratory is to provide students a chance to perform experiments using the internet and visual aids without having the equipments at their end. The RF and Microwave lab is a good candidate for virtual laboratory as it requires costly equipments such as Ratiometers, Network Analyzers, Waveguides, Resonators etc. as well as skilled and specialized personnel, which most of the institutes cannot afford. The laboratory experience is obviously an important part of Engineering education, which goes a long way in building up good quality engineers. The Virtual lab program presents a unique opportunity to boost the quality of engineering education, deepen understanding, and provide the necessary practical skills to young minds through cost effective outreach and distance learning activities.
