Course description and aims

Electromagnetism has electric and magnetic fields as its basic fields and its study covers the generation of fields, the electric charges received from the field, electric currents and their movements. Field equations are differential equations of the field including differentials of time and space, and mathematical methods of vector calculus is heavily used to work with them mathematically. This course uses vector calculus and its logic carefully so that students will learn the comprehensive system of electromagnetism. In the exercises portion, students will solve problems related to units to cement their understanding.
The aim of this course is for students to understand the basics of electromagnetism.

Student learning outcomes

Students will be able to calculate the electromagnetic phenomena learned in the Fundamentals of Electromagnetism using vector calculus of the electromagnetic field and to understand the system of Maxwell's study of electromagnetism and the essential structure of its theory.

Keywords

electric field, magnetic field, Maxwell equations

Competencies that will be developed

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