ECEn 662R, Electromagnetic Properties of Materials, Fall 2014
Welcome to 662R! It is going to be a great semester!
This exciting course is about understanding the physical roots of material properties. Thus, it will start with quantum mechanics, move through some statistical mechanics, and then relate those principles to electrical and magnetic properties. This will help you to understand the great variation and challenge associated with materials and provide a foundation for measurements of those materials. While no single course could possibly cover all of the properties of materials, this should give you a firm understanding of materials that are used in many electrical engineering applications.
