It is envisaged that by 2020 more than 50 billion devices, or things, around the globe will be connected to the Internet - making Internet of Things (IoT) a mainstream technology.

Smart Cities, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Self-Driving cars, Smart Grids, Smart Homes and Buildings, Smart Infrastructure, Smart Agriculture, Smart Health, Smart Mobility are some of the application areas driving the phenomenal growth of IoT.

Businesses are already exploring how to adopt IoT for their operations, but they lack IoT skills and knowledge among employees and management. 

This unique full-time Master's programme is designed by experts in the field with wealth of research and development experience in IoT to address this shortage of professionally qualified specialists.

This MSc offers a unique advantage to its graduates in an increasingly competitive job market with highly-sought expertise.

The teaching on the course is research-led, and you will have opportunity to learn from the real-world, cutting-edge live projects.

You’ll have the opportunity to carry out a dissertation project with real-world clients, in our new Internet of Things Innovation Lab and our Computing Enterprise Centre.

Learning and assessment

The programme utilises a range of learning methods to offer a personalised, research-led, and digitally rooted learning experience with a holistic, international focus.

At the centre of this strategy is the focus on problem-solving through the use of creative, analytical, logical and innovative thinking, and through networking and communicating effectively with peers.

The teaching delivery team includes internationally-renowned researchers and practitioners from all the relevant IoT areas, including sensors, communication, data engineering, data storage, big data analytics, cyber security and visualisation. We have secured multi-million-pound funding in IoT related projects, ensuring you’ll be exposed to cutting-edge knowledge and case studies. Our teaching is research-led, and you will have opportunity to learn from these real-world, cutting-edge live projects.

Formal lectures will facilitate your acquisition of knowledge and understanding, discipline specific skills, and apply this learning to industry practices. Laboratory sessions, using three state-of-the-art, purpose-built laboratories run in conjunction with the theoretical components, give you the opportunity to enhance your understanding of particular topics. These will also help to develop discipline-specific skills and personal transferable skills.

The unique teaching content and delivery on the course is extremely well supported with state-of-the-art, special purpose labs including IoT Innovation lab, Ethical Hacking lab and Computer Enterprise Centre.

In addition, the research and development carried out in these labs and the case studies from the publicly-funded high profile projects, ensures that the content is fresh and cutting-edge. This ensures you’ll be exposed to the very latest and future developments.

In addition to the standard technology-enhanced learning approaches, we embed technologies to deliver key concepts in an interactive environment that enhances your experience in developing IoT products. For example; extensive use of simulation for product design and use of cloud and big data testbeds to support hands-on learning.

Facilities

Students have access to state-of-the-art, special purpose labs including IoT Innovation lab, Ethical Hacking lab, Cyber Security Interdisciplinary Centre and Computer Enterprise Centre.

We also provide a range of online facilities to support independent learning, including our Virtual Learning Environment which gives you access to learning materials and collaborative learning tools 24/7, anywhere in the world.

We also provide virtual server technology using in house hardware to allow students to use our operating systems remotely.

Career prospects

A lack of IoT skills and knowledge among employees and management is viewed by the businesses as the biggest obstacle to using the IoT more extensively (Economist Intelligence Unit).
