Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) specialisation explores the components that make up IoT: the sensors that collect data, the communication networks for data transmission and the data analytics applications for evaluating data and making decision.

In this specialisation, you will gain the knowledge of these three key aspects of IoT by combining the study of telecommunications, electrical and computer engineering, with an emphasis on wireless communications, networks, sensor devices, data technologies and its applications in smart grids and critical infrastructure.

The specialisation aims to offer a comprehensive program with state of the art IoT technologies so you can engage in the creative development of the innovative Internet of Things.
