The 2006 Student EMC (Electromagnetic Compatibility)
Design Competition has officially started and the winner will
be announced at the 2006 IEEE International Symposium on EMC in
The 2006 Student EMC Design Competition is the 6th annual student
competition sponsored by the IEEE-EMCS, and is conducted by the
Education and Student Activities Committee (ESAC). The goal of
this competition is to provide engineering students who are interested
in the field of EMC an opportunity to apply their knowledge and
gain hands-on experience.
The winning entry is awarded $900 USD in cash, and one team member
will receive an expense-paid trip to attend the 2006 IEEE International
Symposium on EMC in Portland, Oregon. This includes a free pass
to all technical sessions and exhibits and a special recognition
during the Awards Luncheon! The most important reward for the
participants is the experience of applying their EMC design knowledge
to a real-life problem.
If you are interested in participating in the 2006 competition,
please contact Harold Rudnick via email at firstname.lastname@example.org,
and request a design kit and a copy of the competition rules.
Then, apply your knowledge of the EMC design principles and submit
your design entry and a detailed report on how you arrived at
your solutions. You will be notified well in advance so you can
attend the 2006 IEEE International Symposium on EMC and present
the results of your efforts in a poster session. And, of course,
you can then collect the $900 USD cash award!
The trip to the EMC Symposium is just part of the competition,
the learning experience lasts a lifetime. For more details about
