* *

**Welcome to the EEE241 Class**

**Instructor: Dragica Vasileska**

Course (Catalog) Description: Vector analysis, differential operators, appliation of fourier analysis and prtial differential equations, scalar, vector fields, electro/magneto statics, time-varying fields, boundary value problems, dielectric, magnetic materials, Maxwell’s equations.

Course Type: Lecture.

Prerequisite: EEE 202; MAT 267, 274 (or 275), MAT 272; PHY 131, 132

Computer Usage: Students are assumed to be versed in the use MathCAD or MATLAB to perform scientific computing such as numerical calculations, plotting of functions and performing integrations. Students will develop and visualize solutions to moderately complicated field problems using these tools.
