ELEN325 - Field Theory


This course teaches the physics and applications of electromagnetic field theory as encapsulated in the vector form of Maxwell's equations. The class will show how these laws govern the design and bound the performance of electronic devices, circuits, and systems. This course covers the following topics from field theory to include magnetic materials and forces, inductance, Coulomb‘s law, Gauss’s Law, energy, divergence, electrical potential, conductors, dielectrics materials, capacitance, Ampere’s Law, boundary value problems, Biot-Savart Law, Ampere‘s law, Lorentz force equation, magnetic materials, magnetic circuits, inductance, time varying fields and Maxwell‘s equations. As part of the course, students will develop Maxwell’s Equations from electric and magnetic field experimental laws. This course will also cover wave propagation in free space and in transmission lines and characteristics of radiating structures such as antennas. Prerequisites: MATH227 and MATH240.
