EE 206 or equivalent.

Course Description

This is a one-semester introductory course in one of the most important subjects in electrical engineering, electromagnetic field theory, and its applications. Radar, television, electric motors, fiber optics, and medical imaging all depend on knowledge from this area. Upon completing this course the students have a basic understanding of the mathematical tools used in modeling static or dynamic electromagnetic fields, the behavior of static or dynamic electro­magnetic fields in various media with different physical boundaries, and the use of electromagnetic field theory in such important applications as transmission lines, waveguides, and antennas. The primary methods of assessing student learning are homework assignments, quizzes, exams, and design projects.
