### Course description and aims

This course aims to give the concepts of electromagnetism which can be basis of wide fields of science and engineering. The course begins with static electric and magnetic fields followed by alternating fields, includes examples in various situations and finally reaches the Maxwell Equations that comprehensively describe electromagnetic phenomena.

### Student learning outcomes

Students gain the knowledge and skills to (1) explain the concepts of electric and magnetic fields, potential, energy and describe them mathematically, (2) understand electromagnetic phenomena through the Maxwell Equations comprehensively, and (3) solve problems in various situations using the mathematical framework given by the Maxwell Equations.

### Keywords

Coulomb's law, electric field, Gauss’ law, potential, energy, magnetic field, Ampère's circuital law, Biot-Savart law, electromagnetic induction, Maxwell Equation, Lorentz force, specail relativity

### Competencies that will be developed

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

### Class flow

The course follows the textbook "The Feynman Lectures on Physics: Volume II".

### 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.
