This is one of the core courses for the EE Department. The intent is to use rigorous mathematical expressions so that the students may appreciate experimentally observable phenomenom regarding static electric fields, steady electric current, static magnetic fields. The students will also learn the coupling between electric and magetic fields that leads to time-varying electro-magnetics. The derivation and physical insight behind the Maxwell’s Equations will be emphasized.
The course contents are pivotal for later course such as electromagnetic waves, introduction to optical engineering, photonics, high-frequency circuit design, solidstate devices.
Required background knowledege include: Calculus (I, II), vector analysis
