Course description

Course aims to provide students with appropriate skills on the
experimental observations and theoretical description of the phenomena
electromagnetic and electromagnetic waves.

Learning outcomes (compared with the descriptors of
Dublin)

- Knowledge and understanding. The purpose of the course is
  build a conceptual understanding of the issues
  addressed. The student will be able to analyze problems
  related to the phenomenology of electric and magnetic fields.

- Applying knowledge and understanding. Ability of
  understanding about the issues raised during the course,
  ability to correctly apply knowledge. The student will be
  able to carry out exercise on electrostatic and magneto-static
problems as well as the field electromagnetic

- Making judgments. Develop the ability to evaluate
  critically address problems and propose the most appropriate approach
  to argue what is required.

- Communication Skills. Demonstrate "logical-deductive" and
  synthesis in the oral communication

- Learning Skills. Integrate knowledge from various sources
in order to reach a broad view of the issues
related to the topics and develop the necessary connections
among acquired topics.

Prerequisites

Qualification related to knowledge acquired in the courses of Geometry, Mathematical Analysis and Physics I:
- basic concepts about Euclidean geometry
- knowledge of trigonometry
- vector algebra
- Newtonian dynamics

Learning assessment

Exam lets to check the level of achievement oo training objectives.
Test is divided into two parts: written and oral test in order to evaluate the understanding of the basic arguments through the resolution of exercises and the presentation of the basic law. The test is selective: written test is for admission to oral one.
