Providing high-quality professionals for the Internet of Things industry.
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 and, as a result, how it will change the way people live, work and travel. As a discipline, it covers elements of Computing Science, Engineering, and Data Science.
The MSc in Internet of Things aims to train computing and engineering professionals to follow a career where they can apply leading-edge computing, engineering, sensor technology, networks and data science skills across a range of application domains. The course content has been informed by internationally leading research being conducted by the School of Computing and the School of Engineering. The delivery of the course is supported by a large-scale pervasive and mobile computing environment, a suite of contemporary sensing technologies and rapid prototyping facilities.
The University regularly 'refreshes' courses to make sure they are as up-to-date as possible. The University calls this process 'academic revalidation'. This course will be 'refreshed' and changes may be put in place.

This intensive one-year specialist master's course on Internet of Things is aimed at highly-motivated graduates with a good honours degree in computing, engineering or a related discipline. While the course has a particular focus on the employment needs of the local economy, the skills and abilities developed are easily transferred to a more global stage.
The Internet of Things is an exciting and exponentially growing area both within industry and academic. It sits at the intersection between Computing Science, Engineering and Data Science. The proposed MSc in Internet of Things will, therefore, prepare students for both an industrial career with skills in computing, networks, sensor technologies and data analytics in addition to providing a relevant platform to embark on research studies. These types of skills are in high demand within the sector across the key verticals of Smart Cities, Industrial IoT, Connected Health and Smart Homes.
