Global EMC and Si University

Global EMC University was first offered at the 2007 IEEE EMC Symposium in Honolulu to provide advanced education on a variety of topics that are an important part of EMC engineering. The overwhelming response to this program caused the EMC Society to add it to the technical program every year since 2007. It has continued to receive high praise from those who attend. We are pleased to be able to offer Global EMC University once again at the 2012 IEEE International EMC Symposium in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

An exciting update for this year is the inclusion of Signal Integrity (SI) as a “parallel track”.  This change is one that requires a name change to Global EMC and SI University!  Signal integrity is an extremely important area that has seen a great deal of coverage within many tutorials, workshops, and special sessions within EMCS.

This year’s Global EMC and SI University is 20 hours of instruction on basic EMC and SI related topics that are run in parallel with the traditional technical sessions at the symposium. Students are encouraged to participate in symposium workshops, exhibits and other activities when they are not in class. Classes are taught by an international panel of educators, who have been selected for this program based on their reputation for excellence in areas of practical importance to EMC engineers and their demonstrated ability to communicate effectively with students who are new to the field.

The targeted audience for GU EMC/SI are engineers who have been in the profession approximately 5 years and many past classes have included many individuals who were veterans wanting to improve their understanding. The overall objective of this sequence of lectures and activities is to provide a comprehensive exposure to the basic concepts and skills that are necessary to be successful in the profession.
