Internet of Things Begins With Me

Date: To be advised

Duration: One Day

Course Overview

The Internet of Things (IoT) technology revolution today is what the internet revolution was in the 90s. It is completely changing the way we live, work and play. Whatever industry or field you are in, a basic understanding of the various components of the IoT value chain is crucial. This course will help you answer the “why, how and what” questions for IoT.

The course will start by exploring examples and case studies on why we need IoT and how it can impact our day-to-day work in various industries. You will then learn about the various components of an IoT solution – things, networks, cloud and software – through hands-on experiments using open source IoT development boards and IoT cloud software. The course will end by discussing the real-world challenges of deploying IoT solutions and brainstorming use cases that you would like to implement once you go back to work.

The course uses a unique mix of theory, hands-on experiments, brainstorming and challenges to ensure you absorb and retain the knowledge and skills learned during the course.

This course is part of Professional Certificate in Emerging and Disruptive Technologies.
