Engineering, Technology, and Computer Science Building 221 ~ 260-481-6338 ~ www.ecet.ipfw.edu

This certificate program addresses the fundamental principles and main issues in power electronic applications and provides the theoretical and practical knowledge for analysis, design, and implementation of power electronics systems and subsystems. Applications include microprocessor-based subsystem hardware and software, electrical machines (dc and ac motors, and transformers), C programming and real-time embedded systems, characteristics of power semiconductor devices (diodes, rectifiers, power transistors, MOSFETs, thyristors, and IGBT), SPICE circuit simulators, power converters, dc drives, and ac drives.

Upon satisfactory completion of this certificate program, you will be familiar with all aspects of electronic communication and will have a technical background for work in any of the areas.

The ECET department also offers the Associate of Science and Bachelor of Science with a major in electrical engineering technology and Bachelor of Science with a major in computer engineering technology. In addition to the degrees, the department offers a minor in electronics and certificate programs in advanced microprocessors, computer-controlled systems, electronic communications, and computer networking.

Program Requirements


To earn the certificate in power electronic systems, you must satisfy the requirements of IPFW (see Part 7), fulfill all course prerequisites, and satisfactorily complete the following courses. This certificate is not available to any student with a major in EET (A.S. and/or B.S.).
