Learning activities and teaching methods
Monologic (reading, lecture, briefing)
Learning outcomes
To understand the need for a description and analysis of electromagnetic fields in electronics and the extent to which an understanding of these is needed beyond the use of current and voltage in circuits and other electronic systems. To formalize in vector notation the description of electric and magnetic fields and to have a physical insight into the use of Gauss's Law and Faraday's Law for analyzing electronic devices. Electrostatics, magnetostatics and electromagnetic dynamics including plane electromagnetic waves and Maxwell's equations.
Students are knowledgeable of electrostatics, steady currents, static magnetic field, electromagnetic fields, Maxwell equations and wave propagation problems. They can analyze DC and AC circuits (transients and steady states).
Maths and physics from secondary school and the first term of study.

Assessment methods and criteria
Oral examination

Students should demonstrate understanding of solved problems.
