Switching and Power Electronics An Innovative Approach

Klaus Wuersig SUNY College of Technology at Alfred

It is found so very often that courses that are taught in College have very little relevance to what is happening in the real world. So many times a laboratory exercise is just that, an exercise. In order for meaning and relevance to intrude into this scenario it is essential that a student takes possession of an idea, a concept or an assignment. To design a product , very much like one that is produced in the market place gives meaning to an exercise and now it is very important to learn all about the theory associated with the product. Therefore any projects that are assigned should have as much reality associated with them as possible.Now the instructor becomes a coach , a mentor, a project engineer that guides each individual student to produce within a certain timeframe this product that has his or her name on it. Learning has become an active process, where theory and hands on activity reenforce each other.
