Nearly every object can now be connected to the Internet. From washing machines to sophisticated components of an airplaneā€™s jet engine, even organic items like crops and cows. The ability to connect things and capture useful data is transforming organizations in every industry and opening doors for new career specializations. Discover the basis of this exciting and emerging field using fun, hands-on activities to model securely connecting sensors to cloud services over IP networks and collecting data in an end-to-end IoT (Internet of Things) system. Basic programming (such as PCAP: Programming Essentials in Python), networking and electronics knowledge is recommended.



  • Interdisciplinary IoT systems (electronics, networking, programming, etc.)
  • Design thinking, prototyping and troubleshooting.
  • Develop critical thinking and problem-solving skills using both real equipment and Cisco Packet Tracer.
  • Soft skills: teamwork, articulate problems and solutions in a business context.
