Internet of Things - with or without Applied Research

Ulster University - Belfast

Internet of Things - with or without Applied Research

The Internet of Things (IoT) has become one of the most discussed technology trends of recent years, mainly due to the expected impact that it will have on how we live, work and travel. This is a specialist programme that prepares you for an industrial career with skills in computing science, engineering and data analytics.

As the expectations of how IoT will redefine how an organisation's operations grow, so too are the expectations to have knowledgeable and skilled staff with an appreciation for business processes and market potential.

The course content is informed by our internationally leading research and strong industry partnerships, most notably our jointly established BT Ireland Innovation Centre.

Graduate opportunities exist across a range of industrial settings within the sector across the key verticals of Smart Cities, Industrial IoT, Connected Health and Smart Homes. Alternatively, you may want to embark on further research at the PhD level.
