For the purposes of considering request for Reasonable Adjustments under the Disability Standards for Education (Cwth 2005), and Student Support and Engagement Policy, academic requirements for this subject are articulated in the Subject Overview, Learning Outcomes, Assessment and Generic Skills sections of this entry.
It is University policy to take all reasonable steps to minimise the impact of disability upon academic study, and reasonable adjustments will be made to enhance a student's participation in the University's programs. Students who feel their disability may impact on meeting the requirements of this subject are encouraged to discuss this matter with a Faculty Student Adviser and Student Equity and Disability Support: http://services.unimelb.edu.au/disability

On completion of this subject, students will be able to analyse and compute EM fields for static and time varying cases, and design a variety of electrical transmission networks in the frequency domain using a combination of distributed and lumped circuit elements.
Topics include: static electric and magnetic fields in free and material space; time-varying electromagnetic (EM) fields; Maxwell's equations; plane wave propagation of EM fields: transmission lines; transmission line parameters and characteristics; introduction to distributed circuits; matching techniques; Smith Chart; scattering parameters; introduction to microstrip and stripline; introduction to waveguides and antennas.
On completing this subject the student should be able to:
1. Model electromagnetic fields for static and time-varying cases from the underlying physical principles;
2. Apply techniques for the analysis and design electrical transmission networks in the frequency domain;
3. Use software tools to simulate electromagnetic fields.
One 3-hour end of semester examination (70%), and assignments (30%).
