This research investigates the effectiveness of the Human-Machine Interface-based control (HMI-BC) training kit as an innovative learning media in enhancing the Automation Control Skills (ACSs) of Industrial Electrical Engineering (IEE) students in the Industry 4.0 Era. The study focuses on evaluating the students' ACSs in the Electrical Machine Control Course (EMCC) after using the HMI-BC training kit as a practical learning media. The research adopts a quasi-experimental design with a One-Group Pre-test and Post-test design. The student’s ACSs data is collected using a performance assessment instrument. The impact of the HMI-BC training kit in enhancing ACSs was evaluated based on the differential analysis of pre-test and post-test scores using the paired-sample t-test. Furthermore, the effect size of the HMI-BC training kit on the learning process was determined using Cohen's d effect size analysis. The results reveal a significant improvement in the students' ACSs as evaluated through the assessment of the performance indicators. Based on the evaluation, the findings demonstrate a notable enhancement in students' ACSs. The HMI-BC Training Kit, developed to align with the characteristics of the learning material and industrial advancements, proves to be effective in enhancing students' ACSs, aligning with the evolving needs of the industry. These findings highlight the importance of incorporating the HMI-BC Training Kit in the learning process of motor control to equip students with relevant automation control competencies, ultimately preparing them for the industrial demands of the future.


Keywords – Automation control skills, HMI-BC training kit, industrial electrical engineering, electrical machine control course.
