AbstractAbstract- In response to current and future demands upon the Navy for technical expertise in the power and power electronics fields, the Electrical Engineering Department at the United States Naval Academy has launched an initiative to develop a power engineering concentration within the EE major. To formulate and develop this concentration, priorities for student learning have been established within a twofold mission statement: to develop and equip future Naval Officers and to produce competent and qualified future civilian engineers. From this perspective, course content, sequencing, laboratory experiments, classroom demonstrations, and student research and design projects have been proposed. Along the way, attention was given to structuring the class material within the framework of learning objectives and outcome assessments necessary for meeting ABET accreditation. This paper will present a detailed discussion on this process highlighting the selections made, emphasizing the goals and objectives for student learning, and presenting a status update on the implementation of this effort.
