Fall 2016 Course Descriptions
COMP 50-06 Introduction to the Internet of Things
The pervasive and ubiquitous presence of a variety of smart and connected things or objects – such as microcontrollers, sensors, actuators, mobile phones, etc. – has given rise to the new and complex concept, The Internet of Things (IoT). IoT promises to play a central role in smart cities, health tech, retail, home, supply chain, wearables, transportation and other domains. By 2020, the world will have 50 Billion such connected devices, and IoT is expected to contribute more than $7 trillion to the world economy. Industry leaders are looking for skilled engineers that have the breadth of skills---from embedded programing, computer networking, cloud computing and analytics---to design and implement next generation IoT systems.
