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
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
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.
