Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will have acquired a basic theoretical and practical understanding of EMC. They will have been taught the fundamental physical and engineering models of electromagnetic interference (EMI) and the measures implemented to avoid EMI both in the design phase and in the finished device. Students will learn about the EMI simulations used in assessing electrical equipment and will have acquired some initial practical experience in measuring EMC. They will also be acquainted with current European and international legislation and standards relating to EMC and associated areas and can apply this knowledge when designing and developing products. During the project work, students will have an opportunity to acquire and apply specialist knowledge in their chosen specialist area. As a result, students will be in a position to acquire a more detailed understanding of their specialist area and to use this knowledge in their subsequent careers.
