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. This year, the Board of Directors voted to name the Global University in honor of Clayton R. Paul, who dedicated his career to EMC education and was instrumental in setting up the initial Global University. We are pleased to be able to offer Global University once again at the 2014 IEEE International EMC Symposium in Raleigh, North Carolina.

This year’s Global University is approximately 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, although past classes have included many 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.


 The session descriptions will be available for your review in April 2014 with the publishing of the Advance Program.


A certificate of completion will be provided to students who have signed in and signed out each day thereby confirming 100% attendance at all lectures.  CEUs will be assigned to this course.

Prerequisites: Engineering or Technology Degree with Electrical Theory

Who is it for: Entry-level engineers, technicians and professionals who want to gain insight into EMC and SI technology

Note:  Attendance is based on those who pre-register for the Clayton R. Paul Global University (on-site registration limited to openings due to cancelations), pay the full symposium registion fee, and an additional registration fee for these special classes.
