Work in Progress: Synergy of Visualization and Experiment in Undergraduate Engineering Electromagnetics Course

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Electromagnetics (EM) course is traditionally viewed as a “difficult” discipline due to its highly mathematical and relatively abstract nature. A hybrid visualization and class experiments method has been developed in assisting student learning EM concepts. The topics of demonstrations include static EM theory, Maxwell's equations, wave propagation, and transmission line theory. The purpose of the in-class experiments and simulation demonstrations is to provide a stronger connection between abstract theory and their physical meanings. By connecting the mathematical concepts and engineering applications to the physical world, it generates more interests and in-depth learning, and reinforces the understanding of the underlying EM theory.
