Course content

This course is specifically aimed at International students, supporting those wishing to gain practical work based experiential learning. Together with studying your chosen course we are offering you the opportunity to secure a placement* for an additional 6 months, making the course 18 months in length. This allows students with limited experience to put into practice the skills and techniques developed throughout the Master’s degree.

Developing skills related to the Internet of Things (IoT) can be a great way to enhance your career prospects. An exciting stream of future IoT applications will arise starting from 2021-2025 that would bring computer interactivity to life. The new-age concept of IoT will allow people to interact over great distances in real-time – both with each other and with machines – and this may create sensory experiences. This will allow for new opportunities for remote learning.*

This course is designed to provide you with the opportunity to acquire knowledge across a range of computing and engineering system disciplines, and to 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.
