The Open Electromagnetics Project was established at Virginia Tech in 2017 with the goal of creating no-cost openly-licensed textbooks for courses in undergraduate engineering electromagnetics. While a number of very fine traditional textbooks are available on this topic, we feel that it has become unreasonable to insist that students pay hundreds of dollars per book when effective alternatives can be provided using modern media at little or no cost. This project is equally motivated by the desire for the freedom to adopt, modify, and improve educational resources. This work is distributed under a Creative Commons BY SA license which allows - and we hope encourages - others to adopt, modify, improve, and expand the scope of our work.

Publication of these works was made possible in part by the University Libraries at Virginia Tech's Open Education Faculty Initiative Grant Program and by collaboration with Virginia Tech Publishing, the scholarly publishing hub of Virginia Tech.

Electromagnetics Vol. 1
 
Electromagnetics Vol. 1 (2018)
Designed for a one-semester course targeting third-year electrical engineering students.
Files and support for authors, instructors, and students via the official (VTechWorks) site.
Quick links: Book, Errata (2020/4/18), Extra problems and solutions (v1.3), Figures in PowerPoint.
You can also buy a paperback copy from Amazon.
This book has been used for ECE3105 (Electromagnetic Fields I) at Virginia Tech since Spring 2018.
This book is being used for ECE2214 (Physical Electronics) at Virginia Tech beginning Spring 2020.
Here are some unsolicited reviews and nice things our external reviewers said about us.
Check out this impressive web-based remix from the folks at LibreTexts. Viva la revolución!
 
Electromagnetics Vol. 2
 
Electromagnetics Vol. 2 (2020)
Designed for a second course for third-year electrical engineering students.
Files and support for authors, instructors, and students via the official (VTechWorks) site.
Quick links: Book, Errata (2019/12/12), Extra problems and solutions (v1.0), Figures in PowerPoint.
You can also buy a paperback copy from Amazon.
This book has been used for ECE3106 (Electromagnetic Fields II) at Virginia Tech since Fall 2019.
Here are some nice things our external reviewers said about us.
  What's Next?
The next book will expand the scope of material beyond that covered in Volumes 1 and 2, and we'll continue to add supporting material. Have suggestions? Interested in contributing? Contact Steve Ellingson or Anita Walz.
