Lessons Learning from Developing and Teaching an Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Course - From Concepts to Delivery

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


The field of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) is to ensure that electrical systems will function as intended in an electromagnetic environment. EMC is important in electronic design since all electronics in the market must comply with EMC regulations. The main goal of the EMC course is to provide students with a fundamental understanding of EMC principles to prepare them for future careers in industry and academia. To enhance student engagement and interest, several new teaching practices were proposed and implemented during the fall 2022 semester. These practices included making real-world connections to the course materials, using concept maps to depict the connections between high-level concepts and lower-level facts, incorporating cartoon pictures into the classroom to add a sense of humor, and a gamified approach in the form of a Jeopardy-style game. These approaches are adopted to help students reinforce their knowledge and gain a stronger understanding of EMC concepts. The emphasis of this paper will be on improving the EMC course curriculum through the integration of engaging and interactive instructional activities into traditional classroom settings. We first give a general overview of the course's development and contents, then present a detailed discussion of new teaching strategies. Finally, key findings from the course implementation process as well as student feedback are presented.
