Engineering Physics


ENPH 3332. Electromagnetic Field Theory. 3 Credit Hours (Lecture: 3 Hours, Lab: 0 Hours).

This course provides the background necessary to formulate and solve electromagnetic problems relevant to many fields of electrical engineering such as RF and microwave circuits, photonics, wireless networks, computers, bioengineering, and nanoelectronics. Topics include: static electric and magnetic fields; Maxwell’s equations in integral and differential forms; wave propagation; reflection and refraction of plane waves; transient and steady-state behavior of waves on transmission lines. Prerequisites: PHYS 2426; MATH 3306 and MATH 3433 or concurrent registrations.

ENPH 3360. Microwave Theory. 3 Credit Hours (Lecture: 3 Hours, Lab: 0 Hours).

This course covers the key concepts related to the analysis and design of microwave systems at the subsystem and component level. Topics include: waveguides and wave propagation on transmission lines, including stripline and microstrip structures; microwave network analysis; impedance matching techniques; analysis and design of microwave resonators; power dividers, couplers, and hybrids; microwave filters; noise and distortion in microwave circuits; an introduction to microwave system implementation considerations. Prerequisites: ENPH 3314, ENPH 3332.

ENPH 4086. Special Problems. 1-4 Credit Hours (Lecture: 1-4 Hours, Lab: 0 Hours).

Directed study of selected topics in Engineering Physics. May be repeated with approval of department head.
