Internet of Things Minor

The Internet of Things (MIOT) provides students with familiarity and experience developing systems for Internet of Things (IoT) applications. IoT connects things in the physical world to the computer world using sensors and actuators controlled by computer nodes on the edge of the computer network. The edge nodes process sensor information and communicate to other edge nodes and gateway computers, as well as communicate over internet protocols to cloud servers. IoT systems with knowledge of physical state can monitor, aggregate data, perform analytics and machine learning, and control actuators in ways both complex and empowering. Students in the IoT minor will explore and develop systems using computer programming and physical edge modules. The systems being developed span nodes of embedded processors connected to sensors and actuators, communication between nodes and the cloud, and utilization of cloud servers for storage and analytics.
