Internet of things

In today’s era, technology drives almost everything around us. Smart Devices, Mobile based Home Automation Systems; Gaming devices are seamlessly connected with our lives,enabling us to enjoy a greater degree of personalized and immersive experience. At the same time industrial automation (Industry 4.0), remote health monitoring, development of UAVs (Un-Armed Vehicles) like drones are helping corporations achieve unprecedented scale of operations. IoT has made the whole world “a small global village”. As per the predictions of Cisco, 50 billion devices will be connected by Internet by 2020.

The curriculum is designed in a way to transform a beginner to skilled professional in span of four semesters. Semester – 1 gives emphasis on understanding of – hardware, protocols,technologies and services collectively called as the ‘Ecosystem of IoT’. The course ‘Research Methodology Part-I’ in this semester will introduce the scientific approach for conducting a research; that a student can use in post graduation studies and even further.

Semester – 2 courses are primarily focused on programming for concepts that one studies in semester – 1. The programming languages included are advanced Python and R. The aim of learning these programming tools is to apply data processing for information gathering and analysis of the information obtained. The ‘core elective – 1’ offers the pool of four courses for students to choose one of these electives as the area of minor specialization .The course ‘Research Methodology Part-II’ is designed to apply the scientific approaches studied to complete detailed critical literature review in the choosen area of minor specialization.

Semester – 3 courses aims towards dissertation work by beginning of project work based on the literature review performed in ‘Research Methodology Part-II’. Alongwith the project work, student will learn the concepts of cloud computing to design global and robust applications. These applications will facilitate communication between multiple nodes to improvise/optimize exsiting structure. The courses offered in ‘core elective – 2’ will play important roles in designing – smart, intelligent, secure and automated systems.

Semester – 4 is dedicated for dissertation work and student is expected to apply the knowledge gained in previous semesters to discover/innovate the ideas with originality in work done. The outcome of dissertation work will be a product (with functional physical prototype) or concept that benefits society at large.

To summarize semester – 1 is design to understand IoT, semester – 2 aims at realization of ideas and concepts using programming, semester 3 is dedicated to identify problem and propose solution to it and semester – 4 expects to apply the knowledge and create the product or deliver best solution to problems identified.

Objectives
Students will be able to:

  • Understandbasics of embedded systems, hardware devices, and IoT tools.
  • Analyzereal-time practical issues and apply internet of things concepts in providing innovative solutions.
  • Learnand designin-depthresearch processto address scientificand societal problems
