ESE 330 - Engineering Electromagnetics I: Fundamentals
Course Description:
Electromagnetic theory as applied to electrical engineering: vector calculus and orthogonal coordinate
systems; electrostatics and magnetostatics; Maxwell's equations, including Poynting's theorem and
boundary conditions; uniform plane-wave propagation; transmission lines - TEM modes, including
treatment of general, lossless line, and pulse propagation; introduction to guided waves; introduction to
radiation and scattering concepts.
