Course Overview

Every “thing” around us is getting smarter because of the exploding field of the Internet of Things, also known as IoT. This technology brings people, processes, data and things together to make networked connections to everything. Smart thermostats, doorbells, refrigerators, cars, and more are connecting to the Internet and fueling this fast-growing industry. In this course, students will experience hands-on learning and work with many IoT projects and devices. Students will get an introduction to basic electrical engineering and the various applications and the processes involved with developing products using IoT. They will learn about sensors, wireless communication, scripting, and security. Go beyond the fundamentals of engineering and work on specialized real-world projects in this fascinating field of electrical engineering.
