Credits

3 cr.

Prerequisite

EE 314.

Course Description

This course is designed to provide seniors/first year graduate students in electrical engineering with a solid foundation in applied electromagnetics. A review of transmission lines and the design of impedance-matching techniques will be explored. The application of Maxwell's equations to guided waves and radiation will also be explored. Throughout the semester, SerenadeSV, HFSS, and MATLAB will be used to emphasize and to help in understanding important concepts of the course as well as a tool for solving homework problems. The primary methods of assessing student learning are homework assignments, quizzes, exams, and design projects.
