University of Florida, first to offer things internet title

The Florida International University (FIU) will add next year to its offer of studies a career in Internet of Things (IoT), the first of its kind in the United States, according to its website.

The FIU Faculty of Engineering and Computing will be responsible for this race with a 120-hour study credit that will cover four main areas – hardware, software, communication and cyber security – and will combine assistance classes and online.

“We are proud to be pioneers in this field and to give our students the ability to be prepared for future technology jobs in the future,” said FIU Chancellor Kenneth G. Furton in a statement.

Furton said that the university degree of specialist in IoT will allow its graduates to access jobs “many of which do not exist at present”.

According to experts in technology, the Internet of Things, which consists of installing devices on machines, devices and objects to be connected to each other, will generate a great demand for specialists in those processes.

Keml Akkaya, program director for IoT’s new career and associate professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at FIU, explained that now companies hire software and programming specialists on the one hand, and specialists in Hardware, but are interested in people who know about all those areas.

With the title in IoT, these specialties will be combined into one person and will not need to make several hires.

Career students whose first course will begin in the spring of 2018 will be prepared as hardware engineers to work on microcontrollers and sensors and as software engineers in programming small devices.

As specialists in wireless communications, they will know how devices communicate with each other and how cyber security professionals can protect data and Internet users from hackers or hackers, Akkaya said.
