The realm of Internet of Things (IoT) systems is intricate and ever-evolving, demanding expertise across diverse domains, including hardware and software development, wireless communication, data analytics, cybersecurity, and project management.
• Develop a deep understanding of IoT principles, encompassing hardware and software components, wireless communication, data analytics, and
• Acquire the skills to design and implement IoT solutions, making informed decisions on platforms, hardware, networks, and embedded systems
• Harness the power of IoT data through advanced analytics, enabling applicants to extract valuable insights and make data-driven decisions
• Enhance knowledge of IoT security best practices, protecting IoT systems from potential threats and vulnerabilities
This program is tailored for those seeking a deeper understanding of IoT project options, going beyond the scope of short professional development courses. It is also ideal for employers in search of professionals with advanced engineering knowledge in the IoT field. Engineers will explore extensive choices and justifications involving platforms, hardware, networks, digital languages, cloud services, and embedded systems, all of which are thoroughly covered in this program.
As an advanced “Foundations” program, it complements the Graduate Certificate in Internet of Things (IoT) Security, Deployment, and Management, serving as a valuable preparatory step. Applicants typically possess a bachelor’s degree in related engineering fields and aim to bolster their expertise with a specialized credential that offers academic rigor, enhancing their competitiveness in the job market.
Graduates who emerge from the program will be able to demonstrate specialized and integrated technical and theoretical knowledge required to develop viable connected products for the IoT market.
Specifically, graduates of the Graduate Certificate in Internet of Things (IoT) will be able to:
On successful completion, the program students will graduate with the Graduate Certificate in the Internet of Things (IoT) for Engineering.
This is an advanced program designed for individuals who may already have a relevant undergraduate qualification or higher. If applicants lack this, they must show relevant and substantial experience in the subject area (subject to the approval of the Dean) combined with evidence of continuing professional development. The program involves depth and complexity in varied specialized contexts.
Applicants must have completed at least a 3-year Bachelor degree in engineering, science or technology or equivalent in a related field; OR
