ECE259H1S - Electricity and Magnetism

Course Description

The fundamental laws of electromagnetics are covered; including Coulomb's law, Gauss’ law, Poisson's and Laplace's equations, the Biot-Savart’s law, Ampere's law, Faraday's law, and Maxwell's equations. Vector calculus is applied to determine the relationship between the electric and magnetic fields and their sources (charges and currents). Field-matter interaction is studied, including polarization in dielectric materials and magnetization in magnetic materials. Circuit elements such as the resistor, capacitor and inductor are introduced from an electromagnetic point of view. Other topics include: electric and magnetic forces, the electric potential, capacitance and inductance, electric and magnetic energy, magnetic circuits, boundary-value problems and transmission-lines.

ECE212 - Circuit Analysis

Course Description

ECE212 covers fundamental concepts and techniques for the analysis of linear circuits. ECE212 builds on the ECE110 materials and covers:

ECE1254H - Modeling of multiphysics systems

Blood flow visualization 

Blood flow simulation (Argonne National Labs)

Course description

The course deals with the modeling and simulation of physical systems. It introduces the fundamental techniques to generate and solve the equations of a static or dynamic system. Special attention is devoted to complexity issues and to model order reduction methods, presented as a systematic way to simulate highly-complex systems with acceptable computational cost. Examples from multiple disciplines are considered, including electrical/electromagnetic engineering, structural mechanics, fluid-dynamics. Students are encouraged to work on a project related to their own research interests.
