This paper presents the structure, methodology and content of a new Diagnostics course at the Department of Energy Engineering, AAU. The lectures were to suit the problem based learning teaching method practised at AAU. Teaching was oriented to support the semester projects of the participating students. Additionally, specific subjects requested by participants, basic diagnosis and testing methods were presented during the lectures and workshops. General engineering knowledge about electric machines, power electronics and the combination of these was presented. The laboratory method, experiments and sample results are presented. This paper may serve as inspiration for instructors who may be required to offer a similar course.
