A Dash of Maxwell’s: A Maxwell’s Equations Primer – Part One

Solving Maxwell’s Equations for real-life situations, like predicting the RF emissions from a cell tower, requires more mathematical horsepower than any individual mind can muster. These equations don’t give the scientist or engineer just insight, they are literally the answer to everything RF.

“The Micron Foundation grant to our engineering program is greatly appreciated. It provides leadership in our on-going fundraising efforts to put in place the faculty, lab equipment, and facilities required to build a high-quality engineering program and achieve ABET accreditation in the shortest possible time,” said NNU Engineering Program Director, Dr. Stephen Parke. Dee Mooney, executive director, Micron Foundation stated, “The Micron Foundation supports NNU’s efforts to strengthen its engineering program which supports the State of Idaho’s goal of boosting education in science, technology, engineering and math.”

The Micron Technology Foundation, Inc., a private, non-profit organization established in 1999 with a gift from Micron Technology, Inc., is engaged in funding educational efforts and charitable activities.
