Unlike other technologies, IoT is far more complex encompassing almost every branch of core Engineering-Mechanical, Electronics, Firmware, Middleware, Cloud, Analytics and Mobile. For each of its engineering layers, there are aspects of economics, standards, regulations and evolving state of the art. This is for the firs time, a modest course is offered to cover all of these critical aspects of IoT Engineering.

Entrepreneurs and Investors who are looking to build new ventures and want to develop a better understanding of the IoT technology landscape to see how they can leverage it in an effective manner.
Estimates for Internet of Things or IoT market value are massive, since by definition the IoT is an integrated and diffused layer of devices, sensors, and computing power that overlays entire consumer, business-to-business, and government industries. The IoT will account for an increasingly huge number of connections: 1.9 billion devices today, and 9 billion by 2018. That year, it will be roughly equal to the number of smartphones, smart TVs, tablets, wearable computers, and PCs combined.
In the consumer space, many products and services have already crossed over into the IoT, including kitchen and home appliances, parking, RFID, lighting and heating products, and a number of applications in Industrial Internet.
However, the underlying technologies of IoT are nothing new as M2M communication existed since the birth of Internet. However what changed in last couple of years is the emergence of number of inexpensive wireless technologies added by overwhelming adaptation of smart phones and Tablet in every home. Explosive growth of mobile devices led to present demand of IoT.
Due to unbounded opportunities in IoT business, a large number of small and medium sized entrepreneurs jumped on a bandwagon of IoT gold rush. Also due to emergence of open source electronics and IoT platform, cost of development of IoT system and further managing its sizable production is increasingly affordable. Existing electronic product owners are experiencing pressure to integrate their device with Internet or Mobile app.
