EMC is often put off to the last phase of development … but it can't be ignored. Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) has many implications on several levels and most engineers working with electrical or electronic products have to deal with its many facets every day. In an IEEE survey of colleges and universities, it was found to be included in the curriculum in only ten engineering programs. As an explanation for this professors have commented that often there is so much to teach, EMC is given only a cursory nod. Go to http://dlsemc.com/emc-class/description.htm for more info.
