The term Internet of Things (IoT) encompasses everything connected to the internet, and it is increasingly being used to define objects that 'talk' to each other. Connected machines and objects in factories offer the potential for a 'fourth industrial revolution'.
This course is designed to provide you with the opportunity to acquire knowledge across a range computing and engineering systems disciplines and develop skills in the use of cloud computing, communication systems, cyber physical systems and security.
You will benefit from access to our modern facilities which include an range of professionally equipped laboratories and on campus IoT communication infrastructure. With help from the Digital Catapult (the UK's leading advanced digital technology innovation centre), and the IoTUK, we have installed an IoT Gateway on campus, which will be used to connect our IoT sensors and edge devices; such as Arduinos and Raspberry Pi's, to a cloud for IoT.
“IoTUK is a national programme designed to accelerate the UK’s Internet of Things capability, launched as part of the Government’s £32m investment in IoT.”*
With our support you can develop an ability to critically evaluate existing and emerging IoT technologies, and apply knowledge, understanding, analytical and design skills in support of technical design/development projects.All this will prepare you for challenges in application of the IoT in industry, research and business.
