Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Health, Engineering and Sciences
School or Department : School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering
Student contribution band : Band 2
ASCED code : 031307 - Communications Technologies
Grading basis : Graded


Pre-requisite: {(MAT1502 or ENM1600) and ELE2103 and ELE2601} or Students must be enrolled in one of the following Programs: MEPR or MENS or GCNS or GDNS

Other Requisites

Recommended prior or concurrent study: MAT2500 or ENM2600


Students will comprehend the nature of electric and magnetic fields associated with voltage and currents and how these may be similarly propagated as a travelling wave where such fields constitute the basis of electrical machines and are the cause of much unwanted interference. Students will gain an understanding of both wave propagation and electro-magnetic fields and their application to a wide range of electrical engineering designs.
