ECE 39595 - Electromagnetics II (Now runs as ECE 30412)

Lecture Hours: 3 Credits: 3

Counts as:
CMPE Special Content Elective
EE Elective

Experimental Course Offered: Fall 2018, Fall 2019

ECE 31100

Requisites by Topic:
Introductory Electromagnetics

Catalog Description:
Electromagnetics II builds on Electromagnetics I (ECE311) and emphasizes time-varying electromagnetic fields. Both fundamental understanding and an appreciation for applications that span all technologies related to electrical and computer engineering are emphasized. The topics covered include: Maxwell???s equations, plane waves, transmission lines, waveguides and cavities, and antennas and radiation. Applications addressed relate to photonics, communications, and imaging and sensing. More generally, illustrations cover the basic principles on which devices and systems used every day operate.
