What is Internet of things (IOT)?
The basic concept of IoT is to make every object deeply and widely connected through internet, enabling information gathering from attached sensors and management of these objects via software.
With IoT, every object will become
- Accessible and
- In 1990s, one billion people were connected with the advent of internet.
- Mobile connected another 2 billion.
- IoT is expected to connect 50 billion by 2020 ranging from wearable to cars.
Why IOT (Opportunities & Application of IOT)?
The job scenario in IT-BPM industry is undergoing through a transformation due to the adoption of automation and emergence of newer technologies. Due to this new job roles requiring different skill sets are appearing and older jobs based on older skills sets are losing their relevance.
- 60 percent of the new jobs that will emerge in the 21st century will require skills possessed by only 20 percent of the current workforce i.e a gap of 40% of new jobs will require newer skills.
- 4.5 Million Jobs to be generated for IOT’s trained professionals in top companies in the coming years.
- Maximum Top Global companies are adopting industry 4.0 ie. Factories are going smart.
- Smart cities are coming up in India
- Every objects surrounding us are becoming smart
One Year PG Diploma in Internet of Things
Objective of the Course:
The course is planned to cover topics that are designed to impart specific knowledge related with the domain of Internet of Things (IoT) so that a fresh graduate / diploma holder who is undergoing the program will get exposed to IoT architecture. The candidate will work on IoT hardware platforms used and associated software, building wireless sensor networks, accessing things through networks, gateways and interfacing with cloud. This will give a chance for the participant to prepare for jobs in leading companies/ industries/ research and development organizations that are dealing with IoT related projects.
