Accurately predicting the behaviour of electromagnetic systems is a key element in developing novel applications. Computational electromagnetics is an interesting domain bridging theory and experiment. This course is for people who are interested in deepening their knowledge about modelling electromagnetic systems and who wanted to build a strong foundation in the underlying physics. In this course, in addition to important modelling techniques widely used for electromagnetic applications, we will also introduce algebraic topology based modelling method which is not widely known to engineering community.
Prof. Dr. Krish Sankaran is the Founding Director of Vaasa Energy Business Innovation Centre (VEBIC) at the University of Vaasa, Finland. Earlier he was CEO of Prajalaya, a Swiss-based R&D venture working in the domain terahertz engineering and high energy density storage technologies.
