In this paper, the electrical power education curriculum is analysed from the viewpoint of the electrical power industry and from the viewpoint of young people that contemplate their future academic study. From the perspective of young people in industrialized countries contemplating their future and the possibilities of an academic study, the current curriculum in (power) engineering lacks attraction. The number of freshmen still shows a decreasing trend. This paper is aimed to be a contribution towards readjusting this trend.


Driving force electrical engineering, change driving force young students, attract young students, Industrial and knowledge platforms.
