2007 STUDENT EMC DESIGN
“APPLY YOUR EMC DESIGN KNOWLEDGE TO A REAL-LIFE PROBLEM”
The 2007 Student Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Design Competition
has officially started and the winner will be announced at the
2007 IEEE International Symposium on EMC in Honolulu, Hawaii.
The 2007 Student EMC Design Competition is the 7th 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 2007 IEEE International
Symposium on EMC, held in Honolulu, Hawaii from July 8-13. 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 2007 competition,
please have your faculty sponsor contact Ahmad Fallah via email
and request a design kit and a copy of the competition rules.
To ensure prompt arrival of your kit, please make sure the faculty
sponsor’s mailing address is included in the request. 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. Completed kits must be returned by April 1, 2007 (since
this year’s symposium is in July) to ensure that you will
be notified well in advance, so you can attend the 2007 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
The Trip to the EMC Symposium is just part of the competition,
the learning experience lasts a lifetime. For more details about
