About Academy of EMC
The Academy of EMC
Founded in 2018
The Academy of EMC brings free education
about Electromagnetic Compatibility to everybody.
The mission above was defined with the strong belief, that education is the foundation of prosperity and a free society. The Academy of EMC wants to contribute to that and was started in 2018 with the following vision:
The Academy of EMC is the leading free online
know-how platform for EMC design engineers.
This site is a free and independent source of information on Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC). It is a place where engineers can find education, inspiration, solutions and support in EMC.
We would like to give professional engineers the opportunity to proof their skills and know-how in EMC and EMC design. Therefore, we decided to work on an online certification examination to obtain the title of EMC Design Engineer.
EMC is becoming more and more important as today's society moves toward autonomous and intelligent machines to which we entrust our lives to (e.g. autonomous cars). Therefore, we believe that it is important to have a code of ethics to follow.
I'm Reto Keller, electrical engineer with over 10 years of experiences in electronics design. I performed uncountable EMC measurements and succeeded in EMC compliance testing of different products from different industries.
Since years, I'm passionate about EMC. Yes, it sounds crazy. I mean: EMC is not a really fancy topic and you cannot talk with your friends about it (at least not with non-engineers), as they get bored quickly. But what is it, that makes EMC a fascinating topic for many engineers?
For me, EMC means...
... electrical engineering at highest level (high-frequency design).
... theoretical knowledge (in electrical engineering) and practical experience brought together.
... a responsibility for us, the product and development engineers towards the users and the society to only release compliant products to the markets which guarantee reliable operation and safety.
In December 2017, my passion about EMC brought me to the point where I decided to release my simple and practical EMC Design Guidelines online. The feedback all over the world was great and I soon realized that nobody taught me all these practical guidelines at university and that I don't know a university in my area (I live in Einsiedeln, Switzerland) where I could get a reputable certificate or degree in Electromagnetic Compliant Design or thereafter. This was the moment where The Academy of EMC was born.
