    Abstract

    This paper discusses some factors affecting the education sector in the power electronics/power engineering area along with the renewed challenges and opportunities in the light of so many recent R&D developments at system level. It provides an overview of university-based curriculum initiatives and modern methods of instruction encouraging life long learning culture based on problem and project-based learning. The design studio approach currently used at Murdoch University, Perth, Western Australia is outlined. This approach is mapped to the modern attributes of engineering graduates along with Bloom's taxonomic levels of the cognitive domain. It is recognized that the aim should be to achieve learning in the highest possible level of the cognitive domain and the project-based approach is identified as the way forward. Finally, the assessment of students by an industrial panel is also presented as a complementary way to interact with the industry and involve their feedback directly with the educational process.
