A star edge coloring of a graph G is a proper edge coloring without bichromatic paths and cycles of length four. In this paper, we obtain the star edge chromatic number of the corona product of path with cycle, path with wheel, path with helm and path with gear graphs, denoted by Pm ◦ Cn, Pm ◦ Wn, Pm ◦ Hn, Pm ◦ Gn respectively.
