In the first lecture I define a real life engineering problem and ask the students to suggest a solution. The selected problem is such that the solution requires the knowledge of the Course which I am going to teach. As a result, the students are unable to find any solution.After this I tell them that for the solution of the problem knowledge of the course are required. Also, I explain the problem in detail and establish a layout for solution based on the course content. This exercise increases their interest for the course. After completion of each module I discuss with the students how the content of the module contribute to the partial solution of the problem.
Take Power Electronics (EE603) as an example. I am teaching this course to the 3rd year electrical engineering students. The problem I defined is “How to develop a home inverter “. I explained the problem and solution as follows.

  1. The different parts of home inverter are AC-DC converter, battery charge controller (DC-DC converter), and DC-AC converter (PWM voltage source Inverter).
  2. The power electronics switches are required to develop the converters & inverters.
  3. Their semiconductor physics, V-I & gate characteristics, protection & gate triggering scheme of the devices & circuits.
  4. Topology, operating principle, control scheme of the converters & inverters.

It can be easily found that the above topics are covering the major syllabus of the course. My experience with this strategy is inspiring.

Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Finding the time and actual
effort to generate a top notch article… but what can I say… I put things off
a lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.

Hi. I see that you don't update your page too often. I know that
writing content is boring and time consuming. But did you
know that there is a tool that allows you to create
new articles using existing content (from article directories or other pages from your niche)?
And it does it very well. The new posts are high quality
and pass the copyscape test. You should try
miftolo's tools
