Christopher Semanson received his B.S.E. in Electrical and computer engineering from the University of Michigan Dearborn, where he is also working on his master’s degree in Electrical Engineering. He has previously worked for Chrysler in Telematics, Active and Passive Safety, and Hybrid Systems where he focused on End of line testing, tool development, and validation. In 2009 he moved to the University of Michigan Dearborn to work as a graduate studies research assistant in Dr. Chris Mi’s power electronic research group, where he focuses on embedded software development. In fall of 2009, he took four of the IEEE EMC Society laboratory manual experiments, adopted them to fit Henry Ott’s Electromagnetic Compatibility book, and implemented them in addition to a new lab as well as a design project. He also obtained a grant from the IEEE EMC Society to aid in his laboratory development work.

The understanding and recognizing of proper electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) techniques and concepts is now more important than ever, however while classes will cover these concepts linking them to real world, practical scenarios is often overlooked in undergraduate programs. Thus the need for a laboratory curriculum which can bridge the gap between the classroom and the real world is realized. In Fall of 2009 exactly this was done. Utilizing the EMC Laboratory Manual a series of labs were modified to follow the class curriculum and give a practical understanding of the concepts covered in class. The labs used include four pre-existing labs, a new lab used as an introduction to EMC and a design project for ABET accreditation. Each experiment uses concepts experienced in the previous experiment to build a solid understanding of each subject.
