ECE292 Sophomore Seminar

18 March 2008

Electromagnetic engineering

What is Electromagnetics?

The study and application of electric and magnetic fields

Electrical Engineering is Applied 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

Electromagnetic engineering

Why Electromagnetics?

Electrical Engineering is Applied 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

Electromagnetic engineering

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.
