Prerequisite Letter --- What is it?

If you receive a letter, the ECE Department computer

system thinks you are missing a requirement for

enrolling in this course.

 If you receive a letter you must respond to it and

return it to the Department by the deadline or you

will be dropped. 

If you have questions about the form, please see Dr. Markenscoff, Rm N320-D.

Individual Responsibilities

All students must be thoroughly familiar with all the requirements, regulations, and responsibilities described in the UH Student Handbook. Unless otherwise specified, these provisions will be followed as described in the handbook.

Syllabus and Academic Honesty Statement

You should download the syllabus and attached academic honesty forms from the class website and read over the material carefully! You are responsible for everything on it!

Also read the UH Academic Honesty Policy in the online version of the Student handbook (the URL is in the syllabus).

 Fill out the Academic Honesty and E-Mail form, sign it, and return it by the deadline indicated. Otherwise you may be dropped from the course 

What’s this course about ?

Introduction to Electromagnetism

(electric and magnetic fields)

  • In this course we study STATICS (zero, or low frequency electric and magnetic fields)

  • In the next EM course, ECE 3317, you will study DYNAMICS (propagation of time-varying or single frequency electromagnetic fields)


  • The basic sources of electromagnetic forces are stationary or moving electric charges that exert forces on other stationary or moving electric charges. To study these forces, the concept of force fields has been devised.

    • – When charges are stationary, the force field is an electric (electrostatic) field.

    • – When charges are moving with a constant velocity, the force field is a magnetic (magnetostatic) field.

    • – Accelerating charges produce dynamic electromagnetic fields.
