Real electromagnetics for real engineers - Really!

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


This paper describes a sequence of classes - Engineering Electromagnetics I and II that is offered every Fall semester to Junior-level Electrical & Computer Engineering students at Rowan University. The instructors were motivated by a strong desire to make the learning of electromagnetics relevant - not only to other concurrent and subsequent engineering classes that the students take, but also to post-baccalaureate experiences in industry and graduate school. Moreover, since this course has long been feared by students as one of the toughest in the curriculum, the instructors tried to make leaning electromagnetics fun. Instructional techniques that were employed by the professors were based on a significant laboratory component that included numerical modeling, visualization and experimentation. This paper describes classroom/laboratory activity during the Fall 2000 semester offering of this course sequence.
