Main Article Content
We will begin by outlining the details of how electromagnetics are taught in the electrical engineering program offered at Pierre and Marie Curie University (a French example) from the undergraduate to the Masters degree levels. We will also discuss how our methods are and should be adapted to teach waves propagation without discouraging students.
