Module Aims:


To develop knowledge of the laws governing the behaviour of
electromagnetic
fields
,

and to relate the
laws governing the fields to applications in a range of electrical and electronic engineering applications.



Expected Learning Outcomes


Knowledge and Understanding:

At the completion of this module, the student
should be able to:


1.

use vectors and demonstrate an understanding of charge behaviour relating to electric fields;

2
.

' law and Maxwell's

equations and use these to solve
problems relating to electric

and magnetic

fie
lds;

3.

apply electromagnetic

theory to
material properties;


4.

simulate electromagnetic

field behaviour.


Transferable/Key Skills and other attributes:
