This paper will present experiences from the introduction of five new, three hour, interdisciplinary courses at the Missouri University of Science and Technology, USA at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The new courses introduced include: Adaptive Devices, Circuits and Systems; Adaptive Critic Designs; Computational Intelligence (CI); CI Methods in Electric Power; and Power System Simulation. The idea of such integrated and interdisciplinary courses, especially at the undergraduate level, is to expose students to different disciplines at an early stage in their degree program and career that is critical today for the Smart Grid environment. The curriculum, possible assessment, implementation, and impacts of interdisciplinary courses for smart grid education will be presented.
