Master’s Degree of Engineering, major in Internet of Things and Smart Cities

General

Program Description

Today, the Internet of Things (IoT) is the major driver of growth in the telecommunications market.

Smart devices have become innovation enablers in all industrial fields (transportation, energy, surveillance, industrial logistics, agriculture, healthcare, consumer electronics).

These numerous options mean that companies developing products and services are making important strategic decisions combining their prediction of how markets will evolve and how they will meet this evolution through IoT. As a consequence, the demand for competences in this new and evolving landscape is increasing.

The Smart Cities and Urban IoT program graduates engineers with technical expertise in the IoT infrastructures (licensed and unlicensed connectivity), networking, cybersecurity and data science, as well as with a developed sense of the value chain of IoT and data, and of the opportunity and challenges that they represent.
