EE383 (Version: 2012 2) COURSE DETAILS


COURSE TITLE EFF YEAR EFF TERM DEPARTMENT CREDIT HOURS
EE383 ELECTROMAGN FIELDS & WAVES 2012 2 Electrical Engineering and Computer Science 3.5 (BS=0.0, ET=3.5, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course is an introduction to electromagnetic fields, which are the foundation of electrical engineering. The course begins with transmission line analysis using circuit models and reviews the mathematical tools (vector algebra and calculus) that are used to describe electromagnetic phenomena. Maxwell's equations are solved to describe time-harmonic fields under various boundary conditions and at interfaces between dissimilar media. Additional topics include the applications of electromagnetic field theory to transmission lines, antennas and waveguides, and the role of electromagnetics in science, technology and society. Laboratory periods provide opportunities for instructor-assisted problem solving. Additionally, Cadets complete a computer project on finding the numerical solutions to Maxwell's equations.

EE383 ELECTROMAGN FIELDS & WAVES 2004 1 Electrical Engineering and Computer Science 3.5 (BS=0.0, ET=3.5, MA=0.0)
SCOPE
This course is an introduction to electromagnetic fields, which are the foundation of electrical engineering. The course develops the mathematical tools (vector algebra and calculus) that are used to describe electromagnetic phenomena, and then reviews the experimental laws that led to the formulation of Maxwell's equations. We then solve Maxwell's equations to describe time-harmonic fields under various boundary conditions and at interfaces between dissimilar media. We study applications of electromagnetic field theory to transmission lines, antennas and waveguides. We conduct laboratory exercises that experimentally investigate these three applications.
