A basic introduction to electromagnetics and related subjects
Understanding Electromagnetics (2 days)
Electromagnetics (EM) is the underpinning physics 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 through experiments supported by the maths where necessary.
The attendees will acquire a good basic background in engineering Electromagnetics and will be well placed to further their knowledge in this field.
The course comprises a basic introduction to electromagnetics which can inform other studies on topics such as antennas, propagation, EMC and related areas. It also serves as an introduction to studies of electromagnetic numerical modelling.
*Please note that this course has previously been called Principles of Engineering Electromagnetics.
This course is available on request as an in-house course at your premises or at York EMC Services. Please contact us for more information.
There are no dates currently set for this course. Please contact York EMC to register your interest or find out when this course will be available.
