One of the most important trends in information and communication technology is the tremendous increase in the number of internet connected devices (30 billion by 2025, according to industry predictions). This booming technology area is usually referred to as the Internet of Things (IoT). The rapid growth of the IoT, which is often called the fourth wave of digitalisation, is a trend of global importance that touches almost every aspect of society.
The Computer Science: Internet of Things, Master’s Programme (two-year) prepares students for careers in a rapidly growing global industry. The demand for people with IoT engineering skills is expected to increase dramatically. Future innovation in the IoT area is expected to accelerate the growth of the IoT sector. This will lead to a growing demand in society for IoT system developers who have skills in the complete IoT value chain while, at the same time, also understand IoT business aspects. This new and unique master’s programme is designed to meet the demand for IoT system developers and has therefore been shaped to address some of the main challenges that both academy and industry have highlighted in relation to the IoT. These include: security, privacy, big data management, interoperability, business models, and usability.
This programme is relevant for students with a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Computer and Information Science, Software Engineering, Informatics, Telecommunications, Electrical Engineering, or related fields.
Students will deepen their understanding and skills by practising methods and technologies used by industry experts at the forefront of IoT research and development. The programme is both theoretical and has practical elements. The courses focus on the main technological aspects and challenges relevant for future IoT system developers. These include connected devices with limited resources; new computing paradigms; user experience; artificial intelligence (AI) and data management; software architecture and security, innovation, and business models.
Developed in cooperation with the partner companies, the master’s programme meets a demand in the labour market. Therefore, after graduation from the programme the students will be highly employable not only in industry but also in public sector organisations.
For students who wish to continue in academia as researchers, the programme’s proximity to the Internet of Things and People (IoTaP) research centre at Malmö University offers graduates good possibilities to continue on to doctoral studies.
