Fundamentals of Engineering Electromagnetics (EENG 386)

Colorado School of Mines, Spring 2018

This course provides an introduction to electromagnetic theory as applied to electrical engineering problems in power and communication systems. The theory and applications are based on Maxwell's equations, which describe the governing dynamics of electric and magnetic fields, the interplay between them, and how they transport energy. We will learn how electric and magnetic fields behave inside different mediums and how they relate to potential, current, magnetic torque and moment. We will also learn how an electromagnetic wave propagates which is the fundamental theory behind wireless communication and power transfer.

Active RF & Microwave Devices (EENG 429/529)

Colorado School of Mines, Spring 2016, 2017, and 2018

This course introduces the basics of active radio-frequency (RF) and microwave circuits and devices which are the building blocks of modern communication and radar systems. The topics that will be studied are RF and microwave circuit components, resonant circuits, matching networks, noise in active circuits, switches, RF and microwave transistors and amplifiers. Additionally, mixers, oscillators, transceiver architectures, RF and monolithic microwave integrated circuits (RFICs and MMICs) will be introduced. Moreover, students will learn how to model active devices using professional CAD software, how to fabricate printed active microwave devices, how a vector network analyzer (VNA) operates, and how to measure active RF and microwave devices using VNAs.

Passive RF & Microwave Devices (EENG 430/530)

Colorado School of Mines, Fall 2016 and 2017

This course introduces the basics of passive radio-frequency (RF) and microwave circuits and devices which are the building blocks of modern communication and radar systems. The topics that will be studied are microwave transmission lines and waveguides, microwave network theory, microwave resonators, power dividers, directional couplers, hybrids, RF/microwave filters, and phase shifters. Students will also learn how to design and analyze passive microwave devices using professional CAD software. Moreover, students will learn how to fabricate printed passive microwave devices and test them using a vector network analyzer.
