Description

Advances in the RF and wireless communications and systems should be reflected in the undergraduate electrical engineering curriculum. Although electromagnetics is fundamental to this and most other subjects taught in electrical engineering — encompassing a wide range of topics, ranging from semiconductor physics to communication systems —its place in undergraduate education is constantly being debated as newer topics are integrated into an already crowded curriculum. Furthermore, students usually want to see the immediate relevance of the subject to practical engineering problems. However, the applications of electromagnetic principles often seem remote or abstract. Over the past three years, the University of Virginia has restructured its core curriculum in electrical engineering, with a primary goal to merge traditional lectures with practical hands-on projects within a studio-style class model.
