Mode of Study

This course provides a background in engineering electromagnetics required for more advanced courses in the field. Topics include vector calculus, Poisson’s and Laplace’s equations, Vector potentials, Green’s functions, magnetostatics, magnetic and dielectric materials, Maxwell’s equations, plane wave propagation and polarization, reflection and refraction at a plane boundary, frequency-dependent susceptibility functions, transmission lines, waveguides, and simple antennas. Practical examples are used throughout the course.
