Internet of Things (IoT) Systems Engineering

Researchers estimate that within a few years from now, a whopping 20.4 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices will be connected. This surge in the number of IoT devices in use will translate into a significant increase in the number of IoT jobs as well. Clearly, a job in IoT can pay well because of the rising demand, but candidates will require a combination of skills to ensure a promising IoT career.

The new Master’s degree program “Internet of Things (IoT) Systems Engineering” is being offered by the School of Engineering and Technology (SET), Internet Education and Research Laboratory (intERLab), and minor and entrepreneurship program, Asian Institute of Technology (AIT) will be first-time launching in August 2020.

Course Structure

Option 1. Regular M.Eng. or M.Sc (Thesis)

Within at least two years students can obtain a Master of Sciences (M. Sc.) degree by completing a 48 credits curriculum, consisting of 24 credits of coursework, and 24 credits for a thesis. The 24 credits coursework includes 2 three-credit required courses, 1 required  Institute Wide Course (IWC), 1 zero-credit seminar, and 5 three-credit electives.

Option 2. Regular M.Eng. or M.Sc (Research study)

Within at least two years students can obtain a Master of Sciences (M. Sc.) degree by completing a 48-credit curriculum, consisting of 36 credits of coursework, and 12 credits for research. The 36-credit coursework includes 2 three-credit required courses, 1 required IWC, 1 zero-credit seminar, and 9 three-credit electives.

Option 3. Regular M.Eng. or M.Sc (New options with industry internship or with a minor)

Within at least two years students can obtain a Master of Sciences (M. Sc.) degree by completing a 48-credit curriculum, consisting of 24 credits of coursework,​ 12​ credits​ of​ research​ , and 12 credits for an industry internship or some other minor. The 24-credit coursework includes 2 three-credit required courses, 1 required IWC, 1 zero-credit seminar, and 5 three-credit electives.

Option 4. M.S. (One-year)

In addition, this proposed new program can be also applied to the newly proposed M.Tech. within just one year to complete 30 credits of coursework which includes 24 credits of coursework (same as the thesis option) and 6 credits of project work.
