AUPEC 2004 Full Paper Template STRATEGIES FOR STIMULATING INTEREST IN POWER ELECTRONICS AT UWA H.H.C. Iu and L. J. Borle Power Electronics Applications and Research Laboratory School of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering The University of Western Australia, Australia Email: [email protected], [email protected] Abstract Since establishment in September 2002, the Power Electronics Applications and Research Laboratory (PEARL) group in the School of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering (SEECE), UWA has been actively involved in efforts to increase the student enrolments in power engineering subjects and arouse students’ interest in power electronics. These efforts include improvements in course content, providing practical final year projects, launching new Master of Engineering program and attracting students to functions in co-operation with the IEEE Power Engineering Society, WA Branch. 1. INTRODUCTION Since the establishment of the PEARL group in September 2002, a strong effort has been made to increase student enrolments in power engineering courses and stimulate students’ interest in this important area. This paper presents the scenario at School of Electrical, Electronic and Computer Engineering (SEECE), UWA and outlines the steps taken to achieve our goals. Power electronics is a relatively recent power engineering discipline which now pervades all modern applications and advances in power systems and electrical machines. There is no doubt that power electronics is a new and exciting technology. In Western Australia, there are quite a number of small to medium- size companies developing power electronics products. Their demand for high-quality, well-trained graduates in power engineering area is high. However, in recent years, a majority of our third or fourth year students have selected the courses in the areas of communication, signal processing and computer engineering because of
