OBJECTIVES:  

The aim of this course is to introduce fundamental concepts and theory of electromagnetics and its applications as needed by engineers in energy systems, communications and other technologies. Students will become familiar with electromagnetics related topics and characteristics such as basic laws, capacitors, inductors, and others. Emphasis will be made on understanding on the theory of electromagnetics such as electromagnetic fields and electromagnetic waves and its applications to EM-related engineering problems.

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES:

 

Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:

 

CLO1: Explain the essential concepts, principles and theories of electromagnetic (C2)

CLO2: Apply the theories of electromagnetics to solve EM-related engineering problems (C3)

CLO3: Analyse EM-related real life engineering principles using the theories of electromagnetics (C4)

CLO4: Conduct simple experiments on electromagnetic theory (P4)

CLO5: Demonstrate the ability to explain and communicate the concepts of electromagnetics (A3 – PO9)

 

TRANSFERABLE SKILLS: Students should be able to develop and apply characteristic of good engineer skills and interpersonal communication, team work and leadership, problem solving, planning and organizational skills through a process of lectures, tutorials, and student presentations

Ability to ask, discuss, and explain the concepts, principles and theories of electromagnetics through class presentations.
