The mission of the IEEE EMC Young Professionals (YP) group is:

“To continuously encourage life-long-learning, participation, community and involvement within the EMC Society's younger engineering professionals and build cross discipline relationships. All activities of the IEEE EMC YP group shall be focused on increasing technical competence for members through multi-generational relationships, fostering innovation and establishing leadership for the future of the EMC society.”

The IEEE Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Society is dedicated to the development and distribution of information, tools and techniques for reducing electromagnetic interference. The society’s field of interest involves engineering related to the electromagnetic environmental effects of systems to be compatible with themselves and their intended operational environment. This includes: standards, measurement techniques and test procedures, instrumentation, equipment and systems characteristics,interference control techniques and components, education, computational analysis, and spectrum management, along with scientific, technical, industrial, professional or other activities that contribute to this field.  SIPI course will be offered.

If you have received your Bachelor degree or equivalent within the last 15 years, you will automatically become a member of YP EMC when you join the EMC Society. You will also be granted a complimentary membership in the IEEE YP Affinity Group. Get more information about IEEE EMC Young Professionals...
