||To pass the course the student must pass the labs. In addition, the student must complete either of the following two options:
1) Work actively in exercise sessions and submit homework solutions, but this can only yield the highest final grade of 3.
2) Take the final exam in which case any grade 0-5 is possible. The exam is preferably completed by taking minor exams. Bonus points are awarded from the labs, from working actively in exercise sessions, and from succesfully completed homework solutions.
After completing the course, * student is able to analyze resisitive, capacitive, and inductive EM systems using circuit analysis, EM field analysis, and electromagnetic simulation tools. * student is able to explain the laws of electromagnetism and to use field analysis to explain properties of static, quasistatic, and general time dependent EM problems. * student is able to do experiments (construction, measurements) with simple EM systems. Student is capable of utilizing simulation tools (Matlab, Comsol) to solve, to interpret, and to visualize EM problems. * student knows about issues related to electromagnetic compatibility.
