1 Electromagnetic Engineering ECE292 Sophomore Seminar 18 March 2008

2 What is Electromagnetics? - Circuit Theory - Kirchhoff’s Voltage and Current Laws - Current - Resistance - Capacitance - Inductance - Voltage - Electric and Magnetic Energy - Power, Electric Machines - Antennas, Waves and Wave Propagation, Optics and Optical Computing The study and application of electric and magnetic fields Electrical Engineering is Applied Electromagnetics:

3 Why Electromagnetics? As devices get smaller and smaller, and frequencies get higher and higher, circuit theory is less able to adequately describe the performance or to predict the operation of circuits. At very high frequencies, transmission line and guided wave theory must be used - high speed electronics, micro/nano electronics, integrated circuits. Other applications of Electromagnetics - Fiber Optics Microwave Communication Systems Antennas and wave propagation Optical Computing Electromagnetic Interference, Electromagnetic Compatibility Biology and Medicine/Medical Imaging Electrical Engineering is Applied Electromagnetics

4 Why Electromagnetics? As use of the electromagnetic frequency spectrum increases, the demand for engineers who have practical working knowledge in the area of electromagnetics continues to grow. Electromagnetic engineers design high frequency or optoelectronic circuits, antennas and waveguides; design electrical circuits that will function properly in the presence of external interference while not interfering with other equipment. The electromagnetics technical specialty prepares future engineers for employment in industry in the areas of radar, antennas, fiber optics, high frequency circuits, electromagnetic compatibility and microwave communication.
