This course has been designed to give you advanced theoretical and specialist practical knowledge of progressive and emerging topics in Internet of Things to design and engineer the next generation of connected devices and systems.

You’ll learn to apply key concepts in Internet of Things such as hardware/software co-design; programming and interfacing of embedded processors; IoT hardware components; and Networking, and how to acquire, fuse and analyse data collected from sensors, using AI and data science-driven approaches.

You will also plan, manage and deliver significant Internet of Things-based projects, resulting in a high-quality research output through a dissertation. You’ll investigate and develop Internet of Things projects within the confines of the ethical, social and professional contexts of the next generation of smart devices and networked systems.
