Aims
  • The student is able to use Maxwell's classical theory of electromagnetism to describe and evaluate electromagnetic fields and waves produced by electric charges, which are either stationary (producing static electric fields), moving at constant velocity (producing static magnetic fields) or  accelerating (leading to emission/absorption of electromagnetic waves)
  • The student is able to calculate vectors fields (e.g. forces or heat flow) using scalar fields (e.g. force- or potential fields i.c.w. Maxwell's field theory) for species (having certain mass, thermal properties or charge) which are stationary or moving at a constant velocity.
  • The student is able to design, construct and test a sending antenna for a wireless communication device. The working of a finite elements method (COMSOL) is understood and is applied to calculate electromagnetic radiation (antenna patterns and impedance) to optimize the antenna design.
  • The student can translate a partial differential equation problem to COMSOL and validate the result of the evaluation.    
  • The student can predict how electric fields behave inside linear, isotropic materials.
  • The student is able to work in a group to gain knowledge in a Problem Based Learning style.
