Electromagnetic theory is a core course in Electrical Engineering curriculum. The course covers static and dynamic electric and magnetic fields and their interaction. Major topics include Electromagnetic Waves, Transmission Lines, Waveguides, and Antenna fundamentals. In addition, quasi-static analysis and numerical methods are also discussed. Successful completion of the course will allow students to take up Microwave Engg, Antennas, and Optics for future studies.
INTENDED AUDIENCE: The course is an integral part of EE curriculum. Students after completing this course can take up courses in Microwave Engg, Optics, Antennas etc.
INDUSTRY SUPPORT: This is an undergraduate core course required as a foundation to other courses in Microwave, Optical, and Antenna engineering.
