Learning Results:

Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able:

  • to recognize the differences between static and time-varying fields,
  • to determine the electric-field using the magnetic-field intensity, and vice versa
  • to use complex representations of electromagnetic quantities,
  • to understand the properties and behavior of electromagnetic fields
  • to know the impact of propagation media on wave properties,
  • to solve simple problems involving reflection and transmission of waves,
  • to solve problems pertinent to transmission lines, using circuit models,
  • to determine the characteristics of waveguide structures that fulfill certain constraints,
  • to study the properties of simple antennas.
