Attributes listed here represent the key course goals (see Course Map tab) designated for this unit. The list below describes how these attributes are developed through practice in the unit. See Learning Outcomes and Assessment tabs for details of how these attributes are assessed.
|Attribute Development Method||Attribute Developed|
|Students will learn how to analyze and solve problems related to the design of transmission lines as well as electrostatics, magnetostatics and propagation of EM waves in unbounded media||Design (Level 3)|
|Students will gain an advanced knowledge on electromagnetic theory and priciples throughout the unit.||Maths/Science Methods and Tools (Level 3)|
For explanation of attributes and levels see Engineering & IT Graduate Outcomes Table.
Learning outcomes are the key abilities and knowledge that will be assessed in this unit. They are listed according to the course goal supported by each. See Assessment Tab for details how each outcome is assessed.Design (Level 3)
Assignments involve solving problems related to the material covered during the lectures.
Assignment 1: The assignment must be submitted through Blackboard as a single file in PDF or JPEG format by 4:00 pm on Sunday, April 30. Only one submission attempt is allowed, i.e. once an assignment is submitted, it cannot be changed or resubmitted. Assignments submitted within 24 hours after the deadline will receive a 20% penalty. Assignments submitted after 4:00 pm on Monday, May 1 but before 4:00 pm on Tuesday, May 2 will receive a 40% penalty. Assignments submitted after 4:00 pm on Tuesday, May 2 but before 4:00 pm on Wednesday, May 3 will receive a 60% penalty. Assignments submitted after 4:00 pm on Wednesday, May 3 will NOT BE ACCEPTED and will receive a mark of zero.
Assignment 2: The assignment must be submitted through Blackboard as a single file in PDF or JPEG format by 4:00 pm on Sunday, May 28. Only one submission attempt is allowed, i.e. once an assignment is submitted, it cannot be changed or resubmitted. Assignments submitted within 24 hours after the deadline will receive a 20% penalty. Assignments submitted after 4:00 pm on Monday, May 29 but before 4:00 pm on Tuesday, May 30 will receive a 40% penalty. Assignments submitted after 4:00 pm on Tuesday, May 30 but before 4:00 pm on Wednesday, May 31 will receive a 60% penalty. Assignments submitted after 4:00 pm on Wednesday, May 31 will NOT BE ACCEPTED and will receive a mark of zero.
Final Exam: Examination - 2 hours covering all aspects of the unit of study.
The University has authorised and mandated the use of text-based similarity detecting software Turnitin for all text-based written assignments.
There may be statistically defensible moderation when combining the marks from each component to ensure consistency of marking between markers, and alignment of final grades with unit outcomes.
|Policies & Procedures:||See the policies page of the faculty website at http://sydney.edu.au/engineering/student-policies/ for information regarding university policies and local provisions and procedures within the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technologies.|
Note: Students are expected to have a personal copy of all books listed.

These goals are selected from Engineering & IT Graduate Outcomes Table which defines overall goals for courses where this unit is primarily offered. See Engineering & IT Graduate Outcomes Table for details of the attributes and levels to be developed in the course as a whole. Percentage figures alongside each course goal provide a rough indication of their relative weighting in assessment for this unit. Note that not all goals are necessarily part of assessment. Some may be more about practice activity. See Learning outcomes for details of what is assessed in relation to each goal and Assessment for details of how the outcome is assessed. See Attributes for details of practice provided for each goal.
