Electromagnetic Compatibility Graduate Badge
A digital badge, or badge, is a record of achievement that recognizes a student's completion of a coherent and meaningful academic experience. GVSU offers both credit and non-credit bearing badges as digital credentials. Credit-bearing badges include anywhere from 0.5 to 15 academic credits and may include additional noncredit criteria. Credit-bearing badges are also posted to the academic transcript.
The graduate electromagnetic compatibility badge (EMC) certifies knowledge of the EMC principles necessary to design or redesign electronic products that can be successfully tested for EMC compliance.
The badge is open to students in the engineering graduate program.
