The bachelor of science is offered with a major in electrical and computer engineering. Students have considerable flexibility to pursue second majors and minors within the Pratt School of Engineering or Duke's Trinity College of Arts and Sciences. Electromagnetic Fields The discipline concerned with the interaction of electromagnetic waves with materials. Applications of electromagnetics include microwave circuits (used in satellite communication systems, mobile/cellular radios, aeronautical navigation instruments), optical fiber communication systems, radar (tracking, imaging, guidance), radio astronomy, antennas (single and phased arrays), transmission lines and waveguides. Also, radio frequency (RF) signals and microwaves are used in numerous industrial, scientific and medical applications. These include: RF and microwave induced hyperthermia for cancer therapy, drying, sterilization, thawing and curing of materials (including the cooking of food!).
