Computational Electromagnetics Training teaches the basics of CEM with application examples. Fundamental concepts in the solution of EM radiation and scattering problems are presented. Emphasis is on applying computational methods to practical applications. You will develop a working knowledge of popular methods such as the FEM, MOM, FDTD, FIT, and TLM including asymptotic and hybrid methods. Students will then be able to identify the most relevant CEM method for various applications, avoid common user pitfalls, understand model validation, and correctly interpret results. Students are encouraged to bring their laptops to work examples using the provided FEKO Lite code. With the Computational Electromagnetics course, you will learn the importance of model development and meshing, post-processing for scientific visualization, and presentation of results.
