Get in touch to find out more about our September 2020 intake!

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a computing concept describing the inter-connectivity and collaboration of a wide variety of everyday physical objects connected via the Internet.  Rapid IoT development has been driven by ongoing research and technological advances (notably in 5G mobile communications and in Artificial Intelligence).  IoT technologies are enabling a wide range of business opportunities in the context of “smart” homes, neighbourhoods and cities and in the exploitation of intelligent infrastructure and services, in areas such as transport, power and healthcare.

Ireland is a global centre for groundbreaking advancements in IoT. There is strong demand for IoT professionals, who are competent in the design, development, management and support of IoT systems. To meet this skills challenge, Technology Ireland Software Skillnet and Dublin City University (DCU) have developed, with consultation from industry, a level 9 Masters programme in Electronic and Computer Technology (Internet of Things).
