Fundamentals of time

invariant electric and
magnetic fields and time

varying
electromagnetic fields leading to general Maxwell’s equations. Topics include the
electromagnetic model, vector calculus, electrostatic fields, steady electric currents,
magnetostatic fields, electromagnetic induction, slow
ly time

varying electromagnetic fields,
and Maxwell’s equations in integral and differential form; solutions of Maxwell’s equations
in the presence of boundary conditions are presented. Maxwell’s equations in complex
domain are introduced and utilized. Cir
cuit theory and its relationship to electromagnetics is
presented as an approximate form of Maxwell’s equations. Numerical techniques for field
computation are introduced. Simulations in a computer classroom include visualization of 2

D and 3

D electric an
d magnetic fields, and exercises in vector calculus.

This junior

level course is required of all ELE majors. The objectives of the course are for
the students to develop an understanding of electromagnetic

field fundamentals by
emphasizing both mathematical analytical rigor and physical
conceptual reasoning, as
applied toward practical engineering problems. Students learn to analyze engineering
systems based on electrostatic fields, steady electric currents, and magneto static fields in
arbitrary material media, and to apply vector calcul
us to solve a large variety of static field
problems. Students develop a solid grasp and true appreciation of Maxwell’s equations and
use these equations to solve time

varying field problems. By the end of this course, students
should be able to:
1.
Appreciat
e fields.
(2c)
2.
Understand electric and magnetic properties of material media and how these properties
can be exploited in engineering applications.
(3f)
3.
Solve realistic electromagnetic

field problems utilizing physical conceptual reasoning
and mathematical
synthesis of solutions, and not pure formulaic solving.
(3f)
4.
Visualize electric and magnetic fields and understand associated abstract field
phenomena.
(2c)
5.
Utilize three

dimensional vector differential and integral concepts to solve real

life
electromagn
etic

field problems.
(1b)
6.
Appreciate fundamental laws and work of pioneering giants of electromagnetics, their
historical perspective in the development of science and engineering and current
relevance in cutting

edge engineering applications.
(2b)
7.
Mathema
tically model electromagnetic

field physical structures and processes.
(5a)
8.
Geometrically represent and spatially visualize realistic three

dimensional devices and
systems.
(1a)
9.
Appreciate electromagnetic field theory as a foundation of circuit theory and
electrical
engineering as a whole.
(2c)
10.
Understand limitations of circuit theory as an approximation of field theory.
