MSc in Electronic & Computer Technology (Internet of Things)

MSc in Electronic & Computer Technology (Internet of Things)

The Internet of Things [IoT] is a computing concept describing the inter-connectivity and collaboration of a wide variety of everyday physical objects connected via the internet.  Rapid IoT development has been driven by ongoing research and technological advances (notably in 5G mobile communications and in Artificial Intelligence). IoT technologies are enabling a wide range of business opportunities in the context of “smart” homes, neighbourhoods and cities and in the exploitation of intelligent infrastructure and services, in areas such as transport, power and healthcare.

IoT systems involve the convergence of multiple technologies, existing and new, including Sensors & Actuators, Low-energy Communication, Networking and Cloud, Big Data & Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Security and Application Deployment and Management.
