  • IoT Fundamentals

    Course Summary:
    The hands-on IoT Fundamentals curriculum addresses the main stages of digitization: 1) identifying and communicating a business or social problem; 2) designing and connecting IoT devices to interact with the physical world; 3) gathering, managing, and visualizing the data generated; and 4) presenting your IoT solution to a panel of experts.

    The first course, Connecting Things, focuses on identifying, designing, prototyping, and presenting an IoT solution that securely solves a current business or social problem. It is recommended that you have a basic understanding of how to network devices in a LAN and connect them to the internet; an ability to solve basic algorithmic problems using a programming language; knowledge of basic physics concepts such as current, voltage, resistance, and power; and a familiarity with Cisco Packet Tracer.

    The Big Data & Analytics course builds on Connecting Things, teaching you how to collect, store, and visualize data obtained from IoT sensors. You’ll develop the ability to extract data and use data analytics to gain insights, an extremely valuable skill to employers. It is recommended that you have experience writing and debugging Python code

    In the hackathon, you’ll apply the multidisciplinary skills learned in Connecting Things and Big Data & Analytics to identify and solve a real-world problem.
    ● Learn rapid prototyping techniques using Maker technologies such as sensors, electronics, and Arduino microcontrollers.
    ● Use visual programming or Python to enable a Raspberry Pi for the gathering and storing of data via APIs.
    ● Practice what you learn using both real equipment and Cisco Packet Tracer, a network configuration simulation tool.
    ● Deliver business value for your IoT solution by applying analytical thinking and gaining insights from the data you’ve collected.
    ● Develop high-demand skills such as creative problem-solving, critical thinking, collaboration and communication in hands-on lab and hackathon experiences.
