Unit Code: EED600

Unit Name: Engineering Electromagnetics

Description: Electromagnetism is a fundamental scientific phenomenon electrical engineers need to understand in order to grasp, then solve electrical engineering challenges. Vector calculus is a mathematical tool which is useful to understand and interpret the physical phenomena of fields and waves. After covering the fundamentals of vector calculus, you are introduced to electrostatics in free space and in dielectric media. This is followed by the analysis of magnetostatic fields by steady currents in free space and magnetic fields in matter. Time varying fields are then introduced. This will then lead to the Maxwell\\\'s equations and the theory of plane electromagnetic waves (TEM mode) in free space.You are then introduced to propagation of guided EM waves through metallic and optical wave guides.
