The IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility Society is the world's largest organization dedicated
to the development and distribution of information, tools and techniques for reducing
electromagnetic interference. The society's field of interest includes standards, measurement
techniques and test procedures, instrumentation, equipment and systems characteristics, interference
control techniques and components, education, computational analysis, and spectrum management, along
with scientific, technical, industrial, professional or other activities that contribute to this field.
The IEEE EMC Society is a member society of the IEEE Technology Management Council. More information about this council can be found on their web page.
You are automatically enrolled in GOLD EMC if you have received your bachelor within the last 10 years. GOLD is a transition place for young professionals and new graduates. Employment searches, new jobs, professional growth, career development, and life status changes are common experiences for many. Going through these challenges can be daunting but IEEE members never have to go through these experiences alone or uninformed. The GOLD mission is to inspire, energize, empower, and engage young professionals to envision and realize their dreams.
