In the future, all our objects will act as one. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the connection of intelligent devices that captures data about how we live and what we do. All our domestic appliances and basic networked devices are now being connected up to the Internet and are capable of sensing and transmitting data. Market research group Gartner forecasts there will be more than 20bn devices connected by 2020. As the connections grow, devices will exchange information automatically, coordinating actions without human intervention. Connected things will become ubiquitous and will create a single system that transforms the world of everyday objects into a programmable environment. IoT will change the way we think about life and work. Global industries such as manufacturing, transportation, logistics, defence, agriculture, infrastructure, retail, healthcare and food services, are already investing heavily in developing their own IoT infrastructures.

This programme shares its core modules with the MSc Internet of Things. The specialist (option) units will give you an understanding of data analytics methods, processes and selected applications applied in the area of IoT; a clear picture of explorative and confirmatory IoT data analysis technologies and/or practical experience using different data analysis tools in an IoT context. 

This course will produce professionals with the specialised knowledge to meet the skills gap in data management and analysis which will help their employers gain a competitive business advantage. You will also acquire the knowledge and skills to manage real business activities through an IoT infrastructure and develop an awareness of the impact of IoT on society. The course will develop your abilities and give you the confidence to lead change in any organisation.

Starting in 2016, and currently under development, Royal Holloway will offer a new Masters in 'The Internet of Things' (IOT).

The Internet of Things is a new and fast expanding area in Computer Science, technology and engineering: it concerns the systems of networked devices that are now sensing, transmitting and acting on data. A series of reports place the IoT as a new and transformative technology domain that will require millions of developers by 2020.

The course will educate and train you in the key areas required for operating the generation of networks of connected devices that are starting to proliferate (smart homes, smart cities, smart cars, and so on): data analysis, storage and processing; distrbuted and networked systems; and information security.

Facilities include a laboratory where you can experiment with physical devices that can be interconnected in a network, and a cluster facility for processing and analysing real data sets.

Please note this programme is subject to validation.

See the website https://www.royalholloway.ac.uk/computerscience/coursefinder/msctheinternetofthings.aspx

Why choose this course?

The Masters in The Internet of Things at Royal Holloway will provide you with advanced knowledge and skills in three essential and critical areas:

- Data analytics is essential for getting value from the IOT. For example, in Formula One racing there are hundreds of sensors providing thousands of data points for analysis such as tyre pressure and fuel burn efficiency, which have to be collected in real-time for very quick analysis by race engineers onsite.

- Distributed computing and systems concern technical aspects such as algorithms for distributed coordination, time-synchronisation, scalable storage, virtualisation and cloud computing technologies, as well as methodological aspects such agent-based modelling and simulation.

- Cybersecurity is another essential aspect of the IOT. Recent news such as the safety recall issued by Fiat Chrysler of 1.4m vehicles in the US after tech magazine Wired reported that hackers had taken control of a Jeep Cherokee via its internet-connected entertainment system, are examples of how privacy, safety and security are major concerns for the IOT.

During your studies you will have 24/7-access to labs equipped with a state-of-the-art cloud computing testbed and a new generation of large-scale data processing platforms (such as Hadoop and MongoDB), which will give you the opportunity to gain hands-on experience working on real-life problems in areas as diverse as social network analytics, web data mining, and botnet detection.

A futuristic connected world, where we increasingly interact with smart objects, on-body, in buildings, in cities and in distant, harsher environments, was once science fiction. This is now a reality: parts of buildings can now interact with each other, smart vehicles can be autonomously controlled and humans can interact with all these using smart phones and wearables.
This innovative Internet of Things (IoT) MSc programme will help you adapt to become one of the highly skilled and in-demand engineers who are able to fully exploit the potential that these technologies offer.

The Internet of Things (IoT) focuses on a vision of more connected, different, things (or digital devices) than in previous visions of the Internet. More ‘things’ are part of the physical world that connect to form smart environments. Humans are constantly increasing the frequency and range of ‘things’ (sensors, tags, cards, phones, actuator, wearables) they interact with in the world. Machine-to-machine interaction will allow more physical things to interact with other things without human intervention for scalability.

The MSc in IoT is designed to meet the demand for a new kind of IT specialist and skills, those who can:

-engineer new interactive products – things;
-acquire, fuse and process the data they collect from things;
-interact with, and interconnect these things as part of larger, more diverse, systems.
-The School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science draws on its strengths of highly rated R&D centres of excellence in core subject areas comprising Networks, Cognitive Science, Antennas together with interdisciplinary centres such as the Centre for Intelligent Sensing (CIS) and the Centre for Digital Music (C4DM).

The MSc IoT is organised along 3 pathways: Data pathway, Engineering pathway, and the Intelligent Sensing pathway to enable students to focus on these different aspects of the course.

Industrial Experience

The industrial placement currently takes place towards the end of the first year for a maximum of 12 months. It is the student’s responsibility to secure their placement, the school will offer guidance and support in finding and securing the placement but the onus is on the student to secure the job and arrange the details of the placement.

Currently if you are not able to secure a placement by the end of your second semester we will transfer you onto the 1 year FT taught programme without the Industrial Experience, this change would also be applied to any visa if you were here on a student visa.

The industrial placement consists of 8-12 months spent working with an appropriate employer in a role that relates directly to your field of study. The placement is currently undertaken between the taught component and the project. This will provide you with the opportunity to apply the key technical knowledge and skills that you have learnt in your taught modules, and will enable you to gain a better understanding of your own abilities, aptitudes, attitudes and employment potential. The module is only open to students enrolled on a programme of study with integrated placement.

If you do not secure a placement you will be transferred onto the 1 year FT programme.

Assessment of the summer research project/internship consists of four elements, with individual criteria:
1. Interim report (10%, 1,500 to 3,000 words) – the purpose of this report is to provide a mechanism for supervisors to provide valuable feedback on the project’s objectives and direction.

2. Poster Presentation (15%) – a vital skill of an engineer is the ability to describe their work to others and respond to requests for information. The poster presentation is designed to give you an opportunity to practise that.

3. Final report (55%) – this assesses the communication of project objectives and context, accuracy and relevant of background material, description of practical work and results, depth and soundness of discussion and conclusions, level of engineering achievement and the quality of the report’s presentation.

4. Conduct (20%) - independent study, project and time management are key features of university learning. The level of your initiative & independent thinking and technical understanding are assessed through project meetings with your supervisor and your written logbooks.

Careers

As communications now impacts on virtually all areas of society, commerce and business, job opportunities are excellent, and you will be equipped for employment across a range of sectors including mobile/wireless, IT, defence, and big data.

Professional and technical occupations with international companies such as Samsung, Xilinx, British Telecom, MathsWorks, Nokia and Texas Instruments, as well as local companies such as Cirrus Logic, Leonardo, and Stream, are available.

Globalisation of the communications sector and the evolution of many countries to 5G means if graduates wish to work abroad, this course provides an ideal passport to anywhere in the world.

The interaction and communication between billions of devices produces and exchanges data related to real-world smart objects. This MSc develops your skills in data mining and Big Data analysis to better understand, utilise and leverage this data.

A futuristic connected world, where we increasingly interact with smart objects, on-body, in buildings, in cities and in distant, harsher environments, was once science fiction. This is now a reality: parts of buildings can now interact with each other, smart vehicles can be autonomously controlled and humans can interact with all these using smart phones and wearables.
This innovative Internet of Things (IoT) MSc programme will help you adapt to become one of the highly skilled and in-demand engineers who are able to fully exploit the potential that these technologies offer.

The Internet of Things (IoT) focuses on a vision of more connected, different, things (or digital devices) than in previous visions of the Internet. More ‘things’ are part of the physical world that connect to form smart environments. Humans are constantly increasing the frequency and range of ‘things’ (sensors, tags, cards, phones, actuator, wearables) they interact with in the world. Machine-to-machine interaction will allow more physical things to interact with other things without human intervention for scalability.

Your programme of study

Geographic information systems have become really interesting to all of us with the increased innovation in smart phones and IOT, whether we are searching for a venue to eat and drink or looking for something specific in a difficult to reach location. At one time GIS was heavily used in planning and map creation, now we all have access to those maps on our mobiles and tablets and we now expect sensors in our phones to connect automatically to satellite systems to tell us our every move, whether we are walking or in the car. This has made the discipline incredibly interesting and opened up a lot more opportunities in terms of work. On top of the more obvious GIS enabled systems many businesses rely on this technology to inform them about weather, shipping, coastal locations, risks and hazards, agriculture and energy and minerals exploration.

Geospatial technologies are increasingly important across all industries and this programme gives you skills in developing remote sensing, working with wide ranging expertise from coastal, marine, ecology, energy, geology, spatial planning, and archaeology. You learn some very useful skills in programming, simulation and modelling, spatial databases and global positioning systems, plus cartography, remote sensing, digital image processing, geographic information systems, field data capture for a variety of devices. 

It is worth visiting the Scottish Innovation Centres to find out more about innovations using GIS and the technologies it uses
