Objective of course: (one paragraph 3-4 lines)Objective of this course is to give understanding of charge, magnets and their effects. The extended version of this course is EE 2.103 (Electromagnetic waves) & TE3.113 (Antennas & Wave Propagation). This course provides better back ground for the above mentioned courses which leads towards the field of electromagnetics, especially antenna design and other day to day problems in this growing world of communication.
