Electromagnetics: Course Description

This free course from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology offers an introduction to electromagnetics for graduate students pursuing Computer Science or Electrical Engineering degrees. The course emphasizes basic concepts and applications of Maxwell's equations. You will learn about different topics, such as forces and energy, polarization, antennas, dipole antennas and wireless communication. Students should be familiar with Faraday's law of induction and Gauss' law for magnetism before taking this course. Many demonstrations offer physical representation of the principles the course covers. MIT Professor Jin Au Kong teaches this OpenCourseWare.

This free course about electromagnetics includes problem sets, quizzes, demonstration and handouts summarizing the demonstrations. If you'd like to take this introduction to electromagnetics, visit the 'Electromagnetics' course page.
