During this course you will learn how to design, manufacture, install and use electrical equipment and systems. prevents or eliminates electromagnetic interference (EMI).

Prevent EMI and meet EMC requirements

In this course you will learn how to prevent or solve electromagnetic interference (EMI) in the design, manufacture, installation and use of electrical equipment and systems. And how to ensure that products meet the legal electromagnetic compatibility requirements (EMC).

The complexity and quantity of electronic equipment is increasing. This increases the chance of mutual failures. Troubleshooting, the field of EMC, is a dire necessity. Consider ensuring the reliability of medical equipment, automation and wireless communications.

Since 1996, an EMC directive has been included in European legislation. Electrical and electronic equipment must meet minimum requirements regarding emission and immunity in accordance with the EMC directive. In specific applications, much stricter requirements often apply.

Application of the knowledge and skills of the EMC course

After this course you will have acquired the most important theoretical and practical knowledge of EMC:

  • You know EM field properties.
  • You know what causes and sources of interference there are.
  • You can reduce a multitude of interference problems to fundamental EMC problems.
  • You can prevent and solve EMC problems by taking technically and economically responsible measures.
  • You know how to perform EMC measurements, calculations and experiments.
  • You have studied emission, propagation and susceptibility of interference signals and economic efficiency of EMC solutions.
  • You can make the design process more efficient (at an early stage) and save unnecessary costs.
  • You can apply EMC when installing electronic equipment or systems.


The emphasis in this course is more on providing insight than on providing prescriptions for symptom relief.

Intended for

Engineers who want to prevent or solve EMI during the design, manufacture, installation and use of electrical equipment and systems and those who must meet the legal EMC requirements with their products.

You have an academic or higher vocational education background in electrical engineering, measurement and control technology or physics or an equivalent level of knowledge acquired through experience. No prior knowledge of EMC is required. However, some knowledge in the field of circuit analysis is assumed.
