Course Outline:

 

Link to Formal Course Outline

Electromagnetics Part I is an introduction into engineering electromagnetics. It covers the mathematical foundations such as selected topics of vector calculus as well as their application in electrostatics, magnetostatics and conduction. Introduction to the time-varying field is made through Faraday’s law. Electromagnetic analysis is practiced through assignments based on MATLAB. Hands-on experience is encouraged through Bonus Projects.

Course Objective: To obtain working level knowledge of electrostatics and magnetism; prepare for courses in waves and fields, electrical motors and generators, radio-frequency and microwave engineering, and antenna engineering.

 

1.    Mathematical basics: vector algebra, vector calculus, coordinate systems and transformations

2.    Electrostatics in vacuum

3.    Dielectrics and capacitance

4.    Current, conductors and resistance

5.    The steady magnetic field in nonmagnetic media

6.    Magnetic force, torque and energy

7.    Inductance

8.    Faraday’s law

Notes on quiz mark
-        the max. mark for each quiz is 100% 
-        the quiz mark is formed according to the formula
quiz mark (%) = 0.5*attendance + 0.5*solution
where
attendance = 0 or 100
0 ≤ solution ≤ 100

Notes on Re-marking Exams and Grade Changes

Ø  FAILURE ON THE FINAL EXAM MEANS FAILURE OF THE COURSE!

Ø  Marking scheme can be changed in favor of the final exam weight only if the final-exam mark is >  89 %.

Ø  Deferred exams may be oral depending on the number of the examined students.

Ø  Associate Dean Office rules on re-marking exam papers:

If the student wishes his exam to be re-marked, s/he needs to:

- be aware that the grade could go either up or down;

- go to the Associate Dean of Engineering's office (JHE-A214);

- complete an "Examination Re-Read" form;

- take it to the Registrar's Office;

- pay $50;

- return to the Associate Dean's office with the receipt;

- Associate Dean's office then sends the request to ECE Dept., which has a couple of weeks to re-grade and respond;

- if the grade increases by 3% or more, the $50 fee is refunded to the student.

Reminder on Academic Dishonesty Policy:

Academic dishonesty consists of misrepresentation by deception or by other fraudulent means and can result in serious consequences, e.g., the grade of zero on an assignment, loss of credit with a notation on the transcript (notation reads: "Grade of F assigned for academic dishonesty"), and/or suspension or expulsion from the university.

It is your responsibility to understand what constitutes academic dishonesty. For information on the various kinds of academic dishonesty please refer to the Academic Integrity Policy, specifically Appendix 3, located at

http://www.mcmaster.ca/policy/Students-AcademicStudies/AcademicIntegrity.pdf

The following illustrates only three forms of academic dishonesty:

·         Plagiarism, e.g. the submission of work that is not one's own or for which other credit has been obtained.

·         Improper collaboration in group work.

·         Copying or using unauthorized aids in tests and examinations.
