Power electronics is an interdisciplinary area which is interstitial to all of the major disciplines of electrical engineering including “power (static and rotating equipment)”, “electronics (devices and circuits)” and “control (continuous and sampled-data)” as pointed out by Dr. W. E. Newell in 1973. Today, the covering field of power electronics has more widely spread out with the help of ever evolving micro electronics and computer science. For this reason, it has become a very important problem to find out “what are the truest essentials of power electronics? ” and “what is the efficient way in teaching them? ” from an educational point of view in universities and companies. This paper surveys the present status of the power electronics education in universities and companies, and try to point out some problems based on the discussions performed in the IEEI committee on power electronics education.
