Learn to solve today’s digital problems with your passion for technology in the Software Development in an Internet of Things (IoT) Space specialization.
The “internet of things” describes any system or device that connects to the internet or exchanges data with other devices on a network. This is the technology that exists in smart cities, smart homes and within smart devices.
In this specialization, you’ll develop complex computer programs and end-user applications using agile methods as well as theories, concepts and practices supported by the Software Engineering Body of Knowledge (SWEBOK). You will also learn to develop database, web, mobile, cloud and artificial intelligence (AI) applications.
After graduation, you’ll have experience in a variety of programming languages and be prepared to pursue a career in the field of software development or to seek associated software development industry certifications within the web, mobile, cloud and AI industries.

|IT4775 Internet of Things (IOT) Fundamentals||Learners investigate the Internet of Things (IoT) field of study and the related hardware and software connections. In addition to defining the infrastructure requirements for the deployment and operation of IoT devices, learners work through the identification, installation, and operation of the various devices that are required to operate IoT and generate reporting. Learners also develop applications that enter data from IoT, report them and contribute to making decisions as a result. The course covers in detail privacy and security issues that emerge from the use of IoT devices and the data that results from their operations.
Prerequisite IT2249, IT3280.
