CLAYTON R. PAUL GLOBAL UNIVERSITY
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. The Board of Directors had voted to name the Global University in honor of Clayton R. Paul, who dedicated his career to EMC/SI 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 2017 IEEE International Symposium on Electromagnetic Compatibility, Signal and Power Integrity in Washington D.C.
This year’s Global University curriculum addresses developing skills for the engineer that needs an understanding of EMC and SI beyond the fundamentals, so that they are ready to use and apply the knowledge. The curriculum starts with Prof. Roy presenting the frequency components of signaling that are important in analyzing and understanding electromagnetic signaling and radiation. Lee Hill will give an insightful presentation on radiated emissions and he brings in-class demonstration to his lectures. Prof. Swaminathan will lecture on power integrity and applications to today’s high-speed systems. The attendees will learn about transmission line modeling and simulation from Prof. Fan. These fundamentals will be pulled together in application to system design by Dr. Hubing and a comprehensive application to PCB design by Dr. Archambeault. The curriculum this year will be completed by a panel question and answer session for the Global University attendees.
The targeted audience for Global University is engineers who have been in the profession approximately five years, although past classes have included many veterans wanting to improve their understanding. Attendees should have already been exposed to the material that is currently provided in the Fundamentals Tutorials offered each year by the Education Committee. The overall objective of this sequence of lectures and activities is to provide a comprehensive exposure to the concepts and skills that are necessary to be successful in the profession.
