Applied Research Part-time Studies Course

British Coumbia Institute of Technology

BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.

Course Details

The “Internet of Things”, or IoT, refers to the billions of physical devices around the world that are now connected to the Internet, all collecting and sharing data. Connecting all these different objects and adding sensors to them adds a level of digital intelligence to devices, enabling them to communicate real- time data without involving a human being. The IoT is making the fabric of the world around us smarter and more responsive, bridging the physical and digital worlds. The course is open to anyone interested in learning about the driving technologies empowering Smart Cities, Smart Transportation, Industry 4.0 (IIoT) and Digital Health. The course is geared for people who wish to explore career opportunities, upskill, or want to increase their understanding of digital transformation. It is also an excellent course for executives and decision makers who are called upon to evaluate and implement IoT solutions in a wide range of sectors – public and private. This course is designed to introduce learners to the use, benefits and impact of IoT not only in industry and business but in our day-to-day lives. Students will learn how data is communicated, collected, analyzed and abstracted, and delivered to the end user to make life safer, more efficient and to assist in achieving better data to make better decisions. The IoT Application Framework will be introduced as a practical application development and deployment roadmap to assist the end user in successfully implementing IoT solutions. Students will also learn some of the challenges inherent in setting up and using IoT effectively including cybersecurity concerns and privacy issues.
