Main Question or Discussion Point

I'm a junior majoring in EE and learned with

1. D.K cheng : Field and wave electromagnetics

2. Zill Cullen : Advanced Engineering Mathematics (differential Eqs. & complex analysis)

3. Gilbert Strang : Linear Algebra and its Applications

+I've extremely avoided '~programming' course, so have only few C/C++ programming experience.

And what I want to do is learning computational electromagnetics using MATLAB.

Is there any good textbook, video lecture, or profound advice considering my situation?

Thank you!

Well one may wish to take a course in programming, either in Fortran or C++, but better yet, a course in computational physics if such courses are available at one's institution. Perhaps they are not available until graduate school.

Meanwhile, try starting with - http://www.ece.mcmaster.ca/faculty/nikolova/EM_2FH3_downloads/assignments/Matlab_Manual_2FH3_Bakr.pdf

In my experience, one would take courses in applied mathematics, particularly numerical analysis, while taking a programming course, then take courses with particular applications, e.g., CFD, or mechanics of materials or structures with FEA, or more elaborate systems that basically deal with systems of couple PDEs, particularly coupled, non-linear PDEs.

One may wish to invest in this book - http://www.scitechpub.com/Explore/9781891121586_Lonngren.pdf

Here is an example of an MIT open course
