Abstract

Alternatives in the application of the Internet are applied to power engineering education. Because the student perception of power engineering is often that this is an old technology, new ways to effectively present the challenges, and the opportunities as well, are needed. The Internet and innovative graphic and textural materials are suggested to effectively present the case for power engineering as a valuable career. This is suggested to build on student interest in these computer technologies. The contents of web sites for this purpose are described, and the educational pedagogy of the method is discussed.
