[ELEN 4401] Wave Transmission and Fiber Optics

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

This class was really good. I know a lot of people find Professor Diament boring but its possible they just find the subject boring. Professor Diament knows a lot about electromagnetics and is extremely clear with his explanations and his class is well organized; he is even funny at times. His book on the subject is fantastic and complements the lectures nicely. He is also approachable during office hours and will help with even very basic questions. I learned a huge amount in just one semester.

Note: His grading rubric is a little less generous than similar-level classes. I hear only two people got an "A".

Workload:

1 problem set/week (very small part of the grade). Two tests (both take-home, in Fall 2008)
