Title: AN ASSESSMENT OF MININEC AND ITS USE IN THE TEACHING OF ANTENNA THEORY
Abstract: MININEC is a compact, Method of Moments code, written specifically for the personal computer which has evolved considerably in the last decade. This paper presents an assessment of the program and discusses its use in the teaching of antenna theory to undergraduates. The results of a number of validation exercises on the code are included and the simulation of loaded wire antennas, using MININEC, is discussed.

Title: ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPUTATIONAL METHODS IN THE TEACHING OF ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY
Abstract: The teaching of Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) is gaining acceptance as an important subject that needs to be taught in the Electrical Engineering curriculum at the undergraduate and graduate levels. It has become evident that EMC plays an important part in the design and manufacture of electronic components, subsystems and systems; hence, the need for its teaching. Traditional approaches for the teaching of EMC have focused on analytical methods for the study of diverse types of interference mechanisms. Recently, the use of computational electromagnetic methods in the analysis and solution of EMC problems has been introduced in the teaching of EMC. Students have shown great interest in an EMC course where the use of computer methods helps in their understanding of this, sometimes, difficult subject.

Title: A GLOBAL APPROACH TO TEACHING NEAR-FIELD ANTENNA MEASUREMENTS
Abstract: A complete set of experiments on near-field antenna measurements is presented. This labwork serves two purposes: first, it introduces students to the difficulties associated with such a measurement technique, and second, they gain the confidence to work in high tech, elaborate environments. The technical goal in this labwork is to obtain the radiation pattern of an antenna through measurements of the near-field using a complete experimental set-up driven by a Macintosh computer, and performing a near-to-far field transformation using a combination of Helmholtz equation and the Fourier Transform. Actually, the knowledge students acquire in this labwork is built up in stages which are both independent and experiments in their own right: they are described in detail in the paper, along with the knowledge built up at each stage by students as they advance into the labwork, and the objectives achieved.

Title: COMPUTER-BASED ELECTROMAGNETlC EDUCATION
Abstract: Computers provide an exciting opportunity for boosting electromagnetic education and corporate training. Animated graphics of the wave propagation phenomenon, visualization of the abstract and highly mathematical subjects, one-on-one and self-paced tutoring, and the ability to mimic often unavailable and expensive laboratory experiments are among the often-cited benefits of a computer-based electromagnetic education. In this paper, we review the activities of the NSF/IEEE Center for Computer Applications in Electromagnetic Education (CAEME). This Center was established to stimulate and accelerate the use of computers and software tools in EM education. A reflection on the extensive software package developed and distributed by the CAEME Center is described and examples of the developed software are presented. To help integrate available EM software in classroom teaching and corporate training, CAEME developed four multimedia lessons for instruction. These interactive media lessons integrate and allow individuals to interactively manipulate information from multimedia sources such as video, software, and animated graphics and also include instructional information such as quizzes and tutorials to help evaluate the students' performance. Features of these lessons are presented, and future developments in the Center's activities are described.

Title: MULTIMEDIA SELF-TRAINING PACKAGE FOR BASIC MICROWAVES LEARNING
Abstract: The purpose of this article is to present an original pedagogical product for teaching microwaves. It contains 9 lessons and is composed of 2 media: - a handbook - interactive educational software It is a multimedia self-training product recommended for technicians and engineers working in conventional electronics and wishing to acquire advanced knowledge in microwaves in connection with their working structure. It can also be used in self access at the university by undergraduate students. In this last case, the authors will state in the conclusion, their observations following an experiment in computer aided learning (C.A.L.) carried out at the university of Lille.

Title: A ROMANIAN EXPERIENCE IN COMPUTER-AIDED ELECTROMAGNETIC EDUCATION
Abstract: The paper presents the actual interests in computer-aided electromagnetic education (CAEE) at the Electrical Engineering Department from Polytechnic Institute of Bucharest, Romania. The actual state of computer use on different levels of undergraduate and graduate education is presented. Specifically, an overview of the undergraduate theoretical training and practical applications is described, and research topics for graduate reports and doctoral dissertations are discussed. Issues related to hardware utilities are reviewed, and future projects aimed at improving the CAEE capabilities in Romania are described. The material is based on significant selected references.

Title: CAL - ANTENNAS COMPUTER-AIDED LEARNING OF ANTENNAS
Abstract: CAL-ANTENNAS is a tool containing graphics ( 2D and 3D) and sounds coded in the Turbo Pascal 5.5 language, for the implementation of educational software on antennas. From the Units files, a data base (frequency bands, antenna forms, antenna dimensions, formulae, characterising radiation) and a repertory of numericals methods (integration, graphs plotting, etc...) have been developped, complying with speed contraints. The necessary fundamental principles are contained in text files. Thus, this is one of the first structured software packages developed on the computer in the domain of antennas that treats the fundamental principles and the methodology of design. This version of CAL-ANTENNAS for the microcomputer based on the Intel 386 and 486 Microprocessors contains more than a hundred illustrations.

Title: TEACHING COMPUTATIONAL ELECTROMAGNETICS AT NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY: FROM PCS TO SUPERCOMPUTERS
Abstract: As supercomputers become more accessible and as inexpensive personal computers become more powerful, the numerical modeling of electromagnetic fields in non-idealized geometries becomes increasingly practical. To enable graduate students to solve useful real-world problems, Northeastern University's course ECE 3347: Computational Methods of Electromagnetics teaches the important techniques of field and wave simulation, making use of a variety of programming languages, graphics packages, and computer systems which range from home computers to the most powerful supercomputers. Strong emphasis on algorithm design and computer testing helped motivate students to develop an understanding of the major issues involved in using computers to simulate electromagnetics problems.
