The rapid growth of the Internethas changed our world. A specialization in ‘Internet of Things’ (IoT) is one among the newest innovations in the fields of hardware and software.
Embedded systems and IoT are gaining importance in all aspects of engineering. It is expected that in the near future no gadget will exist without software and embedded technology. IoT is connecting gadgets (things) through the internet and cloud. IoT is being implemented everywhere like in smart cities, security, smart agriculture and home automation. This has created a lot of buzz among industries and right now all the companies are looking for candidates who have practical experience with IoT. A Research and Advisory company predicted that 8.4 billion connected devices will be in use worldwide in 2017 and will reach 20.4 billion by 2020. In India alone, more than 1000 tech start-ups are engaged in IoT based projects, offering plenty of job opportunities.
The students of the program will have an opportunity to work as iScholars at the Center for Embedded and IoT Systems (EIoT) which helps to gain hands-on experience and become industry-ready. The Center offers mini-projects, internship programs and projects in collaboration with Industries. A student can also explore other interdisciplinary research centers@SRU
