Intended learning outcomes
General goals
After the course the student shall from a description of a situation that leads to an electromagnetic field problems be able to
 use their conceptual understanding of the electromagnetic laws in order to qualitatively describe the behavior of the solution to the problem
 use their ability to manage the electromagnetic laws to, in simple situations, set up a computational model and perform the necessary calculations: select appropriate methods; make appropriate approximations; plausibility assess the results
Concrete goals
 define electric and magnetic fields according to their force effect
 explain the physical meanings of the differential equations for electrostatic and magnetostatic fields
 calculate the electric field from the stationary charge distributions and magnetic fields from steady current distributions
 solve simple electrostatic boundary value problems
 describe and use simple models of electric and magnetic field interactions with materials
 explain the concept of electromotive force
 write down Maxwell's equations and explain their physical meanings
 analyze how energy is transported in an electromagnetic field
 analyze the propagation, reflection and transmission of plane waves under normal incidence
 calculate the radiation fields from electric and magnetic dipoles
