Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) problems can significantly decrease the reliability, increase the cost, and delay the development schedules of modern electronic systems. The mission of the Missouri S&T EMC Laboratory is to support electromagnetic compatibility, power integrity (PI), and signal integrity (SI) research and education projects with a goal of developing the knowledge base, tools and people necessary to solve today's EMC problems and address the EMC problems of the future.

The Missouri S&T EMC Laboratory is a group of approximately 50 people, including 5 tenured faculty, 4 research professors, a number of post-doctoral fellows, research engineers, and visiting scholars, and around 35 graduate students. We perform research on a wide variety of topics for both government and industry. Our sponsors include the National Science Foundation, US Department of Energy, US Navy, US Army, US Airforce, US Department of Homeland Security and more. The majority of our funding, however, comes from industry through the Center for Electromagnetic Compatibility, an NSF Industry/University Cooperative Research Center (I/UCRC) which is a consortium of over 20 industry leaders in EMC/SI/PI.

Our laboratory offers one of the largest number of courses related to EMC/SI/PI available at a single university. A number of these courses are made available to people already working in the field through distance offerings. If you are a student interested in working in our lab, note that working in our lab is about much more than coursework: our students work hand-in-hand with industry on leading-edge research, exposing them not only to a wide base of technology critical to today's problems but also developing their ability to interact professionally with others in our field. As a result, our students find themselves in high-demand when they graduate and they go on to work in some of the world's top companies.
