ECE Focus Area: Internet of Things (CSE)















The Internet of Things (IoT) describes the evolution and integration of the Internet to intelligent devices, sensors, actuators, controllers, and other types of Internet-enabled components. IoT-based applications have started to enable seminal advancements in a wide range of areas, including health and lifestyle; transportation; smart cities; environment; energy; agriculture; and industry. These complex IoT applications are comprised of a variety of sensors, wired/wireless communication technologies, data collection and storage techniques, data analytics and machine learning, decision making, security, and more. IoT applications are also increasingly concerned with issues regarding privacy and ethics. The umbrella of IoT technologies is rapidly growing and is becoming relevant to a wide variety of industries. Students pursing this Focus Area will gain an understanding of the many components that comprise an IoT system and how they might be integrated to benefit almost any organization.
