Learning outcomes:
After completing this course, students will be able to apply the approaches and methods learned to explain phenomena in electrical engineering theory, as well as deriving solutions and developing measurement operations and interpreting their results.  Students will be in a position to use the general framework of Maxwell’s theory to derive solutions to specific problems and to assess their validity and applicability.
