Teaching

courses taught

  • ECEN 3400 - Electromagnetic Fields and Waves
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Electromagnetic fields are covered at an introductory level, starting with electrostatics and continuing with DC current, magnetostatics, time-varying magnetic fields, waves on transmission lines, Maxwell's equations and the basics of plane waves. The use of fields in inductors, capacitors, resistors, transformers, and energy and power concepts are studied.
  • ECEN 3410 - Electromagnetic Waves and Transmission
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Covers reflected and transmitted plane waves in layered media, Poynting's theorem of electromagnetic power, two-conductor transmission line theory and practice, Smith chart usage and impedance matching, waveguides, and elements of antenna theory.
  • ECEN 4634 - Microwave and RF Laboratory
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2019
    Introduce RF and microwave measurement methods. A laboratory course whose experiments build on material learned in ECEN 3410: electromagnetic waves, transmission lines, waveguides, time-domain reflection, frequency-domain measurement, microwave networks, impedance matching, antenna pattern measurement, radar and simple nonlinear concepts such as harmonics, square-law detection, mixing and transmitter/receiver applications. Same as ECEN 5634.
  • ECEN 5004 - Special Topics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018
    Examines a special topic in Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering. May be repeated up to 9 total credit hours.
  • ECEN 5014 - Special Topics
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2019
    Examines a special topic in Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering. May be repeated up to 9 total credit hours.
