The MSc Internet of Things Engineering curriculum has been co-designed with industry. The course has adopted the Conceive, Design, Implement and Operate (CDIO) engineering education practice developed by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). The CDIO projects are typically sourced from industry. These projects will provide you the opportunity to work individually and in groups developing real, inclusive and sustainable solutions to commercial problems and enabling students to become “Industry Ready Graduates”.

The awards embrace the latest advances in research and development and offer students a variety of practical and workshop-based learning opportunities which use authentic industry projects and challenges so that students are exposed to the various dimensions of front-line engineering that they will experience in the workplace.

The course takes full advantage of the new engineering, technology and design facilities and team in the Verena Holmes Building at Canterbury Christ Church University.

The full-time course is 1 year, part-time course is 2 years. The core modules studied on the course will develop your understanding and knowledge of the principles of engineering, design, embedded systems, mechanics and electronics, networking, computer programming, data handling, industry 4/5, artificial intelligence (AI) and project management to an industrial level.
