One approach to enhance students’ learning in practical engineering design issues is to expose students to real world projects using real world components. In introductory power electronics course at Cal Poly, this approach has been implemented through industry’s involvement in the final hardware design project. This paper describes experience learned from incorporating this industry sponsored hardware design project. Results to assess this approach through survey conducted by students will be presented.
