The explosion of embedded and connected smart devices, systems and technologies in our lives has created an opportunity to connect every ‘thing’ to the internet. The resultant data collection and connectivity has created efficiencies and solutions previously dreamt up only in science fiction stories.
This is disrupting and transforming every industry around the world.
This MicroMasters program will put you at the front of a digital revolution, where you can design problem-solving systems or guide cutting-edge IoT projects in your industry and area of expertise. Professionals from any field who want to leverage their existing business and/or technical knowledge across IoT-related functions in their workplace will learn exactly what IoT is, how it works, and how to harness its power to improve and streamline your business.
The program will show you the scope of the IoT, and reveal underlying principles and architecture of its networks, devices, programming, data, and security. You will learn how an idea can become a viable, workable IoT product and be able to generate your own IoT ideas and design and/or support their development.
Verified learners will be able to participate in regular live discussions with course lecturers, and remotely access real laboratory equipment for practical sessions. In addition, verified learners will be given access to Cisco Network Academy resources.

The IoT Capstone Project (IOT6x) is the final course in CurtinX's Internet of Things (IoT) MicroMasters® Program. Learners must have successfully completed IOT1x, IOT2x, IOT3x, IOT4x, and IOT5x to enroll and participate in this capstone course. It is also only available for verified learners. Due to these prerequisites and the intensive nature of this instructor-paced course, the IoT Capstone Project only runs once a calendar year, typically from early April until mid-July. Enrollments close soon after the course starts.
