Abstract:
The societal and technological priorities of the world have been continuously changing because of complex computer and technology-driven developments in everywhere like communications, health, defense, economy, etc. Electromagnetic (EM) systems have become more and more complex however the explosive growth of computer capabilities has revolutionized the design and analysis of such complex systems. This has made interdisciplinary exposure necessary in modern EM engineering, also has brought up discussions of educational challenges and novel teaching approaches that confront wave-oriented EM engineering in the 21st century. This paper reviews EM computer simulation strategies and summarizes novel virtual tools that may be used in connection with classical EM lectures as well as with a newly proposed EM Engineering Program.
