The specialization is designed to be taken over 24 weeks. Each course is 3-5 weeks in length.
The first course of the specialization, Introduction to Power Electronics, will begin every four weeks.
What background knowledge is necessary?
Knowledge of circuits and electrical engineering fundamentals at the level of an undergraduate EE major is assumed.
Do I need to take the courses in a specific order?
Generally yes. Each course builds upon the knowledge gained in the previous course.
At this time the University of Colorado Boulder is not offering university credit for this program. However, completion of this specialization would be a compelling resume item for application into any graduate program in Power Electronics, including at the University of Colorado Boulder College of Engineering & Applied Science.
What will I be able to do upon completing the Specialization?
Students completing this specialization will be able to:
●Analyze, model and simulate switched-mode power converters
● Design converters, including magnetic components, based on efficiency, power density and cost trade-off targets.
● Design high-performance voltage-mode and current-mode control loops
● Design a complete state-of-the-art power electronics system in a capstone project
Who will benefit most from completing a specialization in Power Electronics?
This course will target three types of learners: Working engineers needing training in the specialization of power electronics, undergraduate and graduate students who wish to learn about power electronics, and other learners having curiosity about power electronics and its applications such as renewable energy, energy efficiency, and powering computer or mobile electronics.
I completed Introduction to Power Electronics before January 2016, does my Certificate count toward this Specialization?
Yes. If you completed Introduction to Power Electronics before January 2016, you’ll receive equivalent credit for the first three courses in this Specialization: Introduction to Power Electronics, Converter Circuits and Converter Control.
