Electromagnetic Field Theory and Applications


The course will provide fundamental concepts and theories and apply their understanding to solve practical problems. From Maxwell's equations to EM wave propagation, participants will gain a deep insight into the underlying principles governing EM phenomena and their diverse applications. Applicative examples including software exercises will corroborate the theoretical concepts.
