Hours & Credits
The fundamental principles of the physics of electricity and magnetism. A foundation course for electrical engineering students. It starts with the fundamental physics of Maxwell?s equations and shows how the familiar Ohms law and Kirchhoff?s current and voltage laws are a natural consequence. The mathematical concepts of electrostatics, magneto statics, and vector calculus underpin the more complex electrical engineering topics taught in later courses. Transmission lines are included as a practical application of the non-trivial issues that arise in the design of high-frequency circuits.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Eligibility for courses may be subject to a placement exam and/or pre-requisites.
Some courses may require additional fees.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
Please reference fall and spring course lists as not all courses are taught during both semesters.
Availability of courses is based on enrollment numbers. All students should seek pre-approval for alternate courses in the event of last minute class cancellations
Please note that some courses with locals have recommended prerequisite courses. It is the student's responsibility to consult any recommended prerequisites prior to enrolling in their course.
