Abstract

To meet the need of modern workplace, course and curriculum should be redesigned to provide students with the necessary depth of knowledge in a specific subject matter while helping them to acquire the breath in additional areas such as ability to communicate the technical knowledge and be able to work with others with different background. This type of course structure will help students to acquire the qualities and skills required of T-shaped professionals. We have developed a course on Sensor and Measurements course to promote the development of T-shaped professional power engineers. The course structure consists of class room lectures followed by laboratory experiments and demonstrations to reinforce principles discussed in class. Test exams, home-works, and survey results show a trend towards increased student understanding of sensors used in power engineering as well as measurements of power parameters and interpretation of measured data. Students show better understanding of the economic, social and environmental impacts of available data quality for power system observability. Hands-on experience during laboratory experiments and demonstrations as well as the design project related to power system helped promote T-shaped professional development of the students. In this presentation we will discuss course structure followed by students work to demonstrate the effect of the approach towards promoting T-shaped professional power engineers.
