In industrial electronics domain, power electronics students should have an optimum hardware competence. This study presents the application of computer-aided design and experimental hands-on exposure for efficient teaching of power electronics engineering curriculum. Application design of the proposed research centers around effective model of high switching frequency driver circuit for a capacitive piezoelectric inchworm motor based on learning techniques. The sample space comprise 50 undergraduate students, divided into two equal groups, Group A and Group B. Outcome validations testify the pivotal role of the designed course for the optimized piezoelectric driver hardware circuit design with near equivalent characteristics as obtained in simulation model. An evaluation survey was carried out to find if there is a change in attitude of students toward power electronics and allied subjects after attending the program. At the end of the course, opinion of the students were recorded and it was found that the attitude of the students who took the course differed significantly. The differentiation was in favor of the group having undertaken the course with a 91.5% positive response.
