Electromagnetics and Applications: Course Description

Of the four forces, electromagnetic, weak and strong nuclear and gravitational, that influence our lives, the electromagnetic phenomena is the primary force that is directly responsible for most of the events that we experience on a daily basis. It is responsible for sending images to our mobile phones, as well as being the source of energy that our body needs to carry out its functions. 'Electromagnetics and Applications,' an OpenCourseWare that is provided by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, examines the role of electromagnetism in current technology. The course focuses on the field of electromagnetics and its evolution as the driving force behind wireless communications, electronic circuits, computer hardware, fiber optics and the production and transmission of power. Fundamentals of electromagnetics, including waves, radiation, diffraction, and resonance are also taught. The course also features a review of Maxwell's equations and the concepts of forces, power, and energy. The OpenCourseWare is based upon the teachings of Professor Markus Zahn.

The materials for this course are made up of downloadable lecture notes, assignments, exams, study materials and readings from the required textbooks. There are also several video demonstrations. If you are interested in taking this course, visit the electromagnetics course page.
