Gartner, Inc. forecasts that 20.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide by 2020, with the global market projected to reach a value of more than £1 trillion. In time, these appliances will exchange information automatically, co-ordinating what they do without human intervention. The Internet of Things is a key enabling technology for broader paradigm shifts in areas such as smart cities, smart health, automotives, industry 4.0 and circular economies.
This course will help you to become just such a professional. An IoT skills gap has been identified, particularly in relation to programming, data management/visualisation, and security. This course will produce professionals with strong technical, creative, and intellectual skills to meet the need of the computing industry as it expands into ubiquitous networked devices.
You will acquire the knowledge and skills to manage real business activities through an IoT infrastructure and develop an awareness of the impact of IoT on society. The course will develop your technical abilities and give you the confidence to lead technological change in any organisation.
Alternatively, you could choose to specialise by taking another course in the Internet of Things course portfolio:
