Course Objective:
The first course in time varying electromagnetic fields
which
is designed for the undergraduate s
tudents to
make them
understand
the thorough
working knowledge of the rich and varied phenomena of electricity and magnetism
before moving on
to more
advance su
bjects of their interest e.g.
antennas and arrays, microwave engineering
,
radar systems, fiber and integrated optics,
quantum electronics,
po
wer systems, high speed networks,
remote sensing of the environment and wireless communications.
Course Description:
Field theory of electromagnetic phenomena based on vector analytical formulation of fundamental observations, and application
thereof to
electrostatic, magnetostatic and electromagnetic
effects. The
theory of electromagnetism is presented in terms of
Maxwell's Equations.

Grading
and

:
Your semester grade will be determined from the weighted cumulative scor
es you obtain on various evaluations of your subject
learning. These include
homework
, exams and quizzes. The weighting of the components
of your score will be:

Regardless of the reason for your absence, it is
your
responsibility to know what assignments, lecture notes, and class
announcements you missed.
Because meeting deadlines is critical in
engineering
profession, the importance of meeting deadlines is stressed in
this course. That means
an assignment handed in after a deadline set by your instructor receives zero points.
If there are any problems with the course or you are having difficulties with the
theory or with the problems, please c
