This paper presents approaches that have been implemented in power electronic courses to be more appealing to electrical engineering students and hence increase their enrollments. The approaches entail redesigning the structure and content of the courses along with developing new laboratory experiments to better align the lab with the lecture portion of the courses and to reflect recent practical issues in power electronics. In addition to lab experiments, the redesigned courses provide students with an opportunity to apply their knowledge in assigned hardware projects that illustrated many of the points learned in the lecture portion of the course with increasing level of difficulties. Impact on student enrollments in these redesigned courses will be discussed
