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:

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.
