Course description and aims

The aim of this course is to understand the basic phenomena of the electromagnetism in materials.
We are going to cover conductor, the Hall effect, thermoelectric phenomenon, dielectric, ferroelectric, magnetic material, superconductor and electromagnetic wave in materials.

Student learning outcomes

One can study the following topics: i) transport in conductor ii) basic features of dielectric and magnetic material iii) electromagnetic wave in materials described by Maxwell's equations.


Electromagnetism in materials, conductor, dielectric, magnetic material, superconductivity

Competencies that will be developed

Specialist skills Intercultural skills Communication skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

The exercises are uploaded to OCWi.
We will assign the person in charge beforehand, who must present the solution of an exercise in the class.

Course schedule/Required learning

Out-of-Class Study Time (Preparation and Review)

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
