Enrollment in this course is by invitation only

Welcome to the course Introduction to Internet of Things

Introduction to Internet of Things (IoT) is an introductory course for students in both Software Engineering and Business Administration, especially when our society has entered the Industrial Revolution 4.0 and none of us could stand outside this trend. It requires each of us to grasp the capabilities, strengths, and advantages of IoT devices in order to contribute to the development, application and building them in all aspects of social life and business.

This 15 hour course provides the following skills and knowledge:

    • Understand the capability to apply IoT devices in daily life
    • Know how to write and load code, control Arduino board and basic I/O devices
    • Build some simple IoT systems such as: control LED blinking, traffic, fire alarm, thermometer and display on 7-segment LED.

These skills would give you a big picture of IoT. After finishing this basic course, if you are a student choosing embedded and IoT systems career path, this is the inspirational and interesting beginning to explain why you should learn more advanced courses such as C programming, computer network, network programming, mobile programming. If you are a Business Administration student, it would also inspire, motivate, be the ice-break showing you that IoT is not such a difficult or too far away thing to be applied in daily life.
