IoT (Internet of Things) Systems Engineering

Researchers estimate that within a few years from now (October 2018), a whopping 20.4 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices will be connected. This surge in the number of IoT devices in use will translate into a significant increase in the number of IoT jobs as well. Clearly, a job in IoT can pay well because of the rising demand, but candidates will require a combination of skills to ensure a promising IoT career.

The new Master’s degree program “Internet of Things (IoT) Systems Engineering” being offered by School of Engineering and Technology (SET), Internet Education and Research Laboratory (intERLab), and minor and entrepreneurship program, Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) will be first-time launching in August 2020.

Research Focus Areas:

IoT Systems Design/Implementation, Business Intelligence: a combination of software applications, software tools, and procedures, Data Security, IoT Application Design with Mobile Applications, Cloud Computing, Wireless and Mobile Technologies for IoT, IoT hardware (electronics and communications), Quality management, Networking Issues, IoT with AI based Solutions/Systems.
