As a response to the new requirements posed by the shift towards Smartgrids, there have been many initiatives worldwide to develop and update power engineering education curricula. This paper reports efforts to develop courses with the purpose to cross the gap between the disciplines of power engineering and information communication technology at KTH-the Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden. The course portfolio is engineered to complement several master programs offered by the university, and the intended audience are students and practitioners both with and without the power engineering background. This paper primarily focuses on details of a keystone course, Computer Applications in Power Systems, and its connection with the other courses in the portfolio. To prove the popularity and relevance of the reported course portfolio, increasingly positive feedback from students, recognition from industry partners, and accomplishments in terms of meeting several strategic goals in education set by the IEEE Power & Energy Society are also reported by this paper.
