COURSE OBJECTIVE 
Objectives and goals of the course are ability to apply knowledge of mathematics, science, and engineering to Electronics & Communication Engineering problems. An ability to design and conduct experiments, and to analyze and interpret gathered data. An ability to design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve Electronics & Communication Engineering problems. Ability to skillfully use modern engineering tools and techniques necessary for engineering design, analysis and applications. One should be capable to fully understand and solve problems of electrostatics and magnetostatics.
