Purpose of the course:

The course has a triple orientation shaping the sophistication on these
topics and helping the overall maturity.
a) Point out the underlining physical principles of Electromagnetic
Theory and potential applications.
b) Give experience in solving problems using specific mathematical
methods.
c) Emphasize the sequence: Underlining Physical Principle  Mathematical
Model of a Real Situation Case  Mathematical Method.
d) Introduce the
student to the analysis and synthesis processes
e) Introduce the
student to the use of current solution techniques and tools
f) Introduce the
tools in the team environment.
g) Introduce the
student in the laboratory environment.

Grading:

The final grade
(F.G.) for the Lecture is determined from the following:

12
short examinations (E1, E2,... E12) during the semester will be
given, counting 60% of the final grade (5% each).

Classroom
attendance and participation (AP), counting 5% of the final grade.

A cumulative final examination (FE) will be given, counting
30% of the
final grade.

Homework
(HW), counting 10% of the final grade.
The total number of points will result in the following letter grade:
F.G. = E1 + E12 + AP + HW + FE
96100 > A
9195
> A
8790 > B+
8486 > B
8183
> B
7680 > C+
7175 > C
6170 > D
0060 > F
The final grade
(F.G.) for the Laboratory is determined from the following:

12
Laboratory Report (LR1, LR2,... LR12) 2will be submitted during the semester, counting
60% of the final grade (5% each).

Engineering
Journal (EJ), counting 20% of the final grade.

A cumulative final
Laboratory Examination (LE) will be given, counting
20% of the
final grade.

Attendance,
team participation (AP), counting 20% of the final grade.
The total number of points will result in the following letter grade:
F.G. = LR1 + LR12 + EJ + LE + AP
96100 > A
9195
> A
8790 > B+
8486 > B
8183
> B
7680 > C+
7175 > C
6170 > D
0060 > F

3) A typical examination will
consist of short answer questions, multiple choice questions, matching question
with an answer, etc. and problems. The duration of a typical
examination will be 30
minutes. No make up examination will be given; no late homework will be
accepted.

Academic
Integrity: 
Academic
Integrity Policy

Course Policies 

Two
hours lecture per week. Go over the material before you come to class.

Four
hours study time per week, approximately.

Homework
will be assigned weekly. The principle purpose of the homework problems is
to improve your problem solving skills. Engineers solve problems. Problem
solving is an indispensable part of the preparation for examinations.
Homework is due a week after its assignment. Unless specified, all parts
of the homework assignments (HW) must be submitted printed and stapled as
one package. Often there are multiple parts to a homework assignment. Hand
written assignments will not be accepted.

No
late homework will be accepted.

Attendance
will be taken at every meeting.

There
will be three 1hour examinations. The examinations will consist of short
answer questions, multiple choice questions, problems, etc.

The
examinations will be based on the Lectures, on the Homework problems, and
on the project.

Only
a scientific calculator approved by NCECS can be used during the
examinations. (http://ncees.org/exams/calculatorpolicy/)

The
lecture presentations will be available. Lecture presentations will be
posted or emailed to the class on the course website.

All
kind of electronic communication devices are prohibited.

All
computer based assignments started in class must be saved to the
student’s USB flash drive (jump drive). All computer based homework
assignments must be saved to the USB flash drive and brought to every
class.

To
receive full credit for class participation, students must attend all
classes. If a student misses a class it will be the student’s
responsibility to obtain the assignment.

The
project must be completed as a team. Although the project grade is a team
grade, members of the team that do not contribute will receive a reduced
project grade.

There
will be three examinations and a final examination, based upon all
classroom work, homework and contain questions only answerable by active
team members. No makeup quizzes will be given (except the final).

If
a project team is not functioning it is the responsibility of the team
members to resolve the issues. This is an important skill for the work
place. If a resolution of team problems is not possible, the instructor
must be informed of the problems before class.
An
Engineering Journal must be kept on an ongoing basis. The value of the
Engineering Journal is much greater than the 15% grading policy. A wellkept
journal will also affect quizzes, final, project quality and team performance.

Homework:

A typical homework will have multiparts, multiplechoice,
short answer questions, analysis, synthesis, study, etc. No late homework will be
accepted.

Examination:

A typical examination will have various parts for a
predetermined period time of 50
minutes. No make up examination will be given.

Note
to students with disabilities: 
It is the policy to not discriminate
against qualified students with documented disabilities. If you have a
disabilityrelated need for modifications in this course, contact your
instructor.

Policy
Statement on Academic Misconduct:

All
students are expected to demonstrate integrity in the completion of their
coursework. Academic integrity means doing one's own work and giving
proper credit to the work and ideas of others. It is the responsibility of
each student to become familiar with what constitutes academic dishonesty
and plagiarism and to avoid all forms of cheating and plagiarism. Students
who engage in plagiarism and other forms of academic misconduct will face
academic and possibly disciplinary consequences. Academic sanctions can
range from a reduced grade for the assignment to a failing grade for the
course. From a disciplinary standpoint, an Academic Misconduct Report may
be filed and a Faculty Hearing Board may impose sanctions such as
probation, suspension or expulsion.
For
further information on academic misconduct and its consequences, please
consult:

Policy on the use of Electronic Devices:

The
operation of all electronic communication devices is prohibited in the
classroom and the Laboratory.

Policy on the access of Internet Sites:

The
access of any web site other than the one or ones specifically approved by
the instructor during the classroom or laboratory periods is prohibited.

Policy on dressing in the Classroom:

Proper
dressing is expected by all. Covering the heads with hats, hoods, etc. is
prohibited.

Policy on food and drinks
in the Classroom and Laboratory:

Food
and drinks in the laboratory are prohibited.
