Why choose EMPossible?

Real World Examples

Our classes don’t just teach theory, they teach real world application as well. You’ll get multiple examples of what you can do with computational electromagnetics, along with the MATLAB code to do it.


The EMProfessor has over 15 years in research and industry experience in the field of computational electromagnetics. He has also been teaching at the university level for more than 8 years and has been awarded numerous teaching awards.

Visual Learning

Not only will you learn the concepts and the math to develop them, you will see them in action through high quality graphics and animations.

What is EMPossible?

When I was a struggling PhD student, trying to develop my skills and investigate some new topics for my research, I kept running into the same roadblocks. All the materials I found assumed that I already knew a lot about those topics – and I didn’t. There were no materials out there for someone just getting started. There was no “computation for beginners’ class or resource I could find that would start with the basics and then build on them to do something useful and innovative. So I created EMPossible to do just that – to be the thing I wish I’d had when I was getting started.

Computational EM was the spark, but education is taking it’s time to modernize itself. We have all these new ways to demonstrate topics, such as the internet, advanced graphics, VR but traditional education is slow to adapt these methods, particularly in more advanced topics. I want to make EMPossible a place to made animations and visualizations an integral part of the learning experience. Our courses include graphical explanations of how to not only compute, but visualize what is happening, for further understanding. A picture is worth a thousand words, and a animation of how fields interact or how light beams can travel can be invaluable. In the future, you can expect EMPossible to incorporate VR, MR and new technologies to explain complex topics. We’re hoping to set the bar high for future educators.


Who is EMPossible for?

At the core, CEM (Computation and ElectroMagnetics) is the initial focus for the courses offered by EMPossible.  However, we have big ideas and big visions for expanding the library of classes to provide instruction in a larger range of topics.


What do EMPossible classes offer that other don't?

EMPossible courses are based on a very visual approach to learning – you will learn the math, and see how it works through graphics and animations. You’ll see how electromagnetic waves interact with other devices, or how magnetic fields combine. Visualizing the transitions from the equations from matrices to the computer code, so that you understand what is happening, and how to code it. You'll also be learning from one of the experts in the field, Dr. Raymond C. Rumpf, who brings years of research and teaching experience to each course.
