The Internet of Things (IoT) is about the new connected world, that is fast expanding, based on synergistic integration of Computer Science, Sensor Technology, and Engineering Science and Technology. It concerns the new generation of systems of networked devices that are becoming capable of sensing, transmitting and acting on data, e.g,: wearables, autonomous vehicles, drones, robots, smart homes, smart cities, smart industries, etc
The associated IoT coverage ranges from simple sensors at one end to complex services in the "cloud", and encompasses, among others; electronic engineering, software development/engineering, networking technologies, product design, encryption etc.
The programme structure consists of taught modules and research projects in two possible pathways (Pathway 1 and Pathway 2). Year 1, Semester 1 & 2 are common to both pathways, with two Core modules taken in each semester, including a Research Methods (Part 1) module, which is Part 1 of the individual Final MEng Research Projects [Total 30 ECTS].
For Pathways 1:
Semester 3 of Year 1, consists of three Core Modules [15 ECTS];
Semester 1 of Year 2, consists of five electives from which candidates are required to take [20 ECTS];
Semester 2 of Year 2 is dedicated to the Research Project (Part 2: Implementation Phase) [25 ECTS].
For Pathways 2:
Semester 3 of Year 1, consists of one Core Module [5 ECTS];
Semester 1 & 2 of Year 2 is dedicated to the Research Project (Part 2: Implementation Phase) [55 ECTS].
