Overview

Become an Internet of Things wizard with this stimulating online course

Entrepreneurs love it, large corporations love it, universities and now even governments love it – welcome to the exciting and emerging world of the Internet of Things (IoT). Decades ago, we connected computers and got today’s powerful Internet. In the last few years, we started to connect everyday objects using machine-to-machine (M2M) technologies, to create the Internet of Things. But what does this really mean to you, your company and your country? What are the possibilities it offers, and the threats it poses? To become an IoT wizard, join this stimulating online course.

This course is designed for practising engineers, industrialists, researchers and entrepreneurs who are interested in the fundamentals, impact and potentials of the Internet of Things. The course will also be valuable for those with a general interest in the Internet of Things, M2M (Machine to Machine) and Industry 4.0.

You’ll need to have some basic knowledge of technology, wireless communications and how markets function. However, no detailed knowledge is required, as advanced concepts exposed in this course will be explained in sufficient detail.

Note that in the spirit of massive open online courses, this course does not substitute detailed technical learning materials. The aim of this course is to provide sufficient overview in IoT technology, data and business, and to inspire. When appropriate, we will provide more detailed technical information as additional study material.
