‘Bridging Concepts to Practice’ Training Series

Electromagnetic Field Theory is often perceived as an abstract subject of study by teachers and students alike. Further, poor comfort levels with the prerequisite math namely, the vector algebra, vector calculus compounded with varying co-ordinate systems makes it as difficult for the student and more so for the teachers to connect to the fascinating subject and appreciate its practical applications.

Our training programs are designed to enable the faculty members in driving an effective teaching–learning interaction. This training program will take you through a series of hands–on illustrative teaching–learning activities/ experiments bridging the theoretical concepts to the industry relevant application perspective as well as practices.

About this FDP
The program focuses on effective approaches to teaching – learning practical electromagnetics and its applications to real world problems from the electrical engineering domain. The course agenda is tailored to bring out synthesis approach answering the why’s and progressively builds up the background and walks you through several illustrative concept visualization and design set of learning activities on some of the applications of electromagnetic principles and laws. The program also caters to the needs of teachers pursuing their higher studies/ research in the domain of electromagnetics.
Who can attend

  • Teachers with little or no prior experience of teaching Engineering Electromagnetics at the UG level
  • Teachers seeking Analysis hands-on insight on Electrical Machine Design Validation and CEM Techniques
  • M. Tech. (Electrical Machine Design) and Research Scholars pursuing CEM and Electrical Machine Design Research

Key learning outcomes

At the end of the program you will be able to

  • Formulate effective Teaching – Learning Activities toward effective the knowledge transfer and excite the students in learning Engineering Electromagnetics with practical application perspective
  • Bring out the need for and use of Computational Electromagnetics for Analyzing Field Profiles in practical Validation of Designs of Electrical Machines and Electrical Switch Gear Equipments such as Condenser Bushings, Capacitors, Inductors, Electro dynamic applications using the ANSYS MAXWELL
