Enhancing Students' Critical Thinking and Visualization Skills of Three-Dimensional Problems in Electromagnetics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this study, we introduce a tutorial on the use of an interactive computer-aided tool that is suitable for students enrolled in introductory course on Electromagnetics (EM). Further, the study will provide means for students to develop a solid understanding of many electromagnetic concepts through visualization of electromagnetic problems in two- and three dimensions. The simulation tool in this study is based on a MATLAB toolbox package, in which partial-differential equations (PDE) toolbox is used. This study will mainly focus on one classical electrostatic problem that pose a challenge for students to visualize, analyze and evaluate.
