Course Objectives The goal of this course is, by giving the fundamentals of electricity and magnetism, to establish magnetism, electromagnetism and apply this knowledge to define and solve related problems in electromagnetic waves.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Ability to understand and apply solving problems of electromagnetism, that lead to understanding the fundamentals of related fields in aviation
  • Ability to understand the conceptual topics of general electromagnetism and apply to the techniques of aviation.
  • Ability to apply and integrate the fundamentals of magnetism and the principles of avionics as well as airframe and powerplant maintenance
  • Ability to understand how to elaborate topics of physical science, such as magnetism, electromagnetic waves, light, fibers and apply to aviation problems
  • Ability to provide a basic science oriented introduction for the aviation students to give them the opportunity to establish conceptual relations between the electricity and magnetism and a wide range of topics of waves, light, and electromagnetic spectrum
