This paper provides an extensive overview of Radio Frequency Identification technology (RFID) and its applications across different industries, rather than focusing on recent developments alone. Due to the multidisciplinary nature of RFID, proficiency in various engineering fields is necessary to fully comprehend this technology. As the use of RFID continues to expand in various industries, it is imperative to educate engineers and professionals to better understand this technology. An RFID system typically consists of tags, readers, antennae, and software, and various factors such as reading range, frequency range, and environmental considerations must be taken into account when designing such a system. Security must also be a key consideration in the development of an RFID system. To incorporate RFID technology into traditional engineering curricula, this study proposes emphasizing its connection to traditional fields such as electrical, computer, and artificial engineering.
