October 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:15 pm

Come hear, in-person or virtually, IEEE AP-S Distinguished Lecturer (DL) Dr. Levent Sevgi’s broad presentation on the importance of and challenges in teaching electromagnetics in electrical engineering today. His presentation is meant for a general audience and has been well-received throughout the world in his travels as the 2020 – 2023 IEEE AP-S DL. Dr. Sevgi brings over 40 years of electromagnetics experience, in both academic R&D and industry, to his role as an IEEE AP-S DL. See the full presentation abstract below. Everyone is welcome, from practitioner to retiree, and even undergrad students will especially enjoy it. (Don’t worry if you can’t remember all of Maxwell’s Equations!). IEEE events are open to all; you do not have to be a member to attend.

Parking at the Nashua Public Library’s parking lot is paid by the hour, via parking meters; see the lot’s $/hr rates and location along the southern bank of the Nashua River at https://www.nashuanh.gov/DocumentCenter/View/6306/Downtown-Parking-Brochure-PDF?bidId=. Registration is required in order to receive link via e-mail for the live video if attending virtually.


The role of Electromagnetic (EM) fields in our lives has been increasing. Communication, remote sensing, integrated command/ control/surveillance systems, intelligent transportation systems, medicine, environment, education, marketing, defense are only a few areas where EM fields have critical importance. We have witnessed the transformation from Engineering Electromagnetics to Electromagnetic Engineering for the last few decades after being surrounded by EM waves everywhere. Among many others, EM engineering deals with broad range of problems from antenna design to EM scattering, indoor–outdoor radiowave propagation to wireless communication, radar systems to integrated surveillance, subsurface imaging to novel materials, EM compatibility to nano-systems, electroacoustic devices to electro-optical systems, etc. The range of the devices we use in our daily life has extended from DC up to Terahertz frequencies. We have had both large-scale (kilometers-wide) and small-scale (nanometers) EM systems. Large portion of these systems are broadband and digital, and have to operate in close proximity that results in severe EM interference problems. Engineers have to take EM issues into account from the earliest possible design stages. This necessitates establishing an intelligent balance between strong mathematical background (theory), engineering experience (practice), and modeling and numerical computations (simulation).

This keynote lecture aims at a broad-brush look at certain teaching / training challenges that confront wave-oriented EM engineering in the 21st century, in a complex computer and technology-driven world with rapidly shifting societal and technical priorities.

The lecture also discusses modeling and simulation strategies pertaining to complex EM problems and supplies several user-friendly virtual tools, most of which have been presented in the IEEE AP Magazine and which are very effective in teaching and training in lectures such as EM Wave Theory, Antennas and Radiowave Propagation, EM Scattering and Diffraction, Guided Wave Theory, Microstrip Circuit Design, Radar Cross Section Prediction, Transmission Lines, Metamaterials, etc.
