Introduction to CST Studio Suite


Throughout this course you will become familiar with the basic usage of CST STUDIO SUITE in terms of its modeling and simulation capabilities. Participants will learn about the general setup, submission, and result analysis procedures for high-frequency 3D electromagnetic simulations. This class will also introduce the various high frequency solvers available CST MICROWAVE STUDIO and provide a behind-thescenes look into the FIT and FEM algorithms for the general purpose Time-Doman and Frequency-Domain solvers respectively.


  • Navigate the general layout of the CST SUTDIO SUITE interface.

  • Generate CAD geometries within the native modeling interface.

  • Set up the project environment with the desired units, frequency settings, background materials and boundary conditions.

  • Understand the various material types that exist and how to define them.

  • Setup excitations using lumped elements and waveguide ports.

  • Setup result monitors to obtain 2D/3D field data.

  • Choose and set up the most appropriate solver and algorithm for high frequency applications.

  • Run Time-Domain (FIT) and Frequency-Domain (FEM) simulations including parametric sweeps and optimizations.

  • Analyze simulation results such as S-parameters, voltages, currents, 3D nearfields and farfields.

  • Extract data from the standard result set through the use of post-processing templates.
