Electromagnetics is the underpinning science that defines all electronic engineering. It is traditionally thought of as difficult and the mathematical approach traditionally taken can be off-putting. For these reasons it is given less attention in many modern undergraduate degree courses. This course is designed to take the mystery out of the subject by presenting it in an applications oriented manner with explanations through word pictures and thought experiments supported by the maths where necessary.

Key subjects covered

The course comprises a basic introduction to electromagnetics which can inform other studies on topics such as antennas, propagation, EMC and related topics. It also serves as an introduction to studies of electromagnetic numerical modelling.

Who should attend

Engineers needing to have a basic understanding of the electromagnetic phenomena encountered in their workplace.
