Computational Electromagnetics for EMC & Signal Integrity 
(52 VIDEO LECTURES)


About this course

Computational Electromagnetics focuses on solving complex electromagnetic problems using numerical techniques with modern computational resources. This course will help students understand the fundamentals of computational electromagnetics, and learn the real-world applications in EMC and signal integrity. Three full-wave numerical methods, Finite-Difference Time-Domain (FDTD), Finite Element Method (FEM), and the Method of Moments (MoM), will be studied, in addition to transmission-line modeling. Concepts and theories learned in this course can also help students understand various issues in EMC and signal integrity modeling using commercial software tools: such as what to model, how to model, how to set up ports and boundary conditions, what hardware resources are needed for a specific tool, etc.

DVDs include videos of class lectures and experimental demonstrations, as well as course notes, assignments, assignment solutions, and practice exams. Watching the videos, doing the homework, and working through the exams should give you the same learning experience as our senior and graduate students at Missouri S&T.
