BS Internet of Things

Overview Elective Courses  

Introduction

Internet of Things (IOT) is the attempt to build IOT systems. IOT is the combination of wireless communication and computer science. The recent development of communication devices and wireless network technologies continues to advance the new era of the Internet and telecommunications. The various “things”, which include not only communication devices but also every other physical object on the planet, are also going to be connected to the Internet, and controlled through wireless networks. This concept, which is referred to as the “Internet of Things (IoT)”, has attracted much attention from many researchers in recent years. The concept of IoT can be associated with multiple research areas such as body area networks, Device-to-Device (D2D) communications networks, Personnel area networks (PAN), Regional area Networks (RAN), Smart home, Smart buildings, Smart cities, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Networks, Satellite Networks, and so forth.

Aims And Objectives Of The Program

In today’s world, smart devices communicate with each other. Smart phones, smart watches and smart homes are collectively referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT). UMT’s Bachelor of Science in IoT will transform a student into a technological expert who can manage, program, maintain and secure IoT devices in many critical areas such as energy, transportation, health, aviation, infrastructure, smart home, smart city and hospitality. This program will provide expertise in the following four pillars: hardware, software, wireless communications and cybersecurity & privacy.
UMT also happens to be the first university in the nation to offer a bachelor’s degree in IoT. We are preparing the next generation of highly trained IoT specialists.


Outcomes of receiving a bachelor's degree in Internet of Things (IoT):

  • Become an expert in a rapidly growing field. Twenty billion IoT devices and 4.5 million jobs are projected to be available by 2020.
  • An ability to design, install, customize, enhance and maintain IoT devices and networks
  • An ability to effectively communicate IoT ideas in a professional environment
  • Understand how hackers think and be able to present solutions to cyber attacks
  • Be employed by top IoT companies such as Amazon and Intel as an IoT Hardware Engineer, IoT Mobile Application Engineer or other career title related to IoT

Career Opportunities

Computers are now ubiquitous in modern life. The most interesting opportunities in the future are open to those who really know about computing, software and information systems, IOT.  Our graduates can choose from a wide range of opportunities in industry, commerce, government and academia; the majority of Informatics graduates enter employment relating to their degree, while others decide to continue within academia to pursue their research interests.
