B.TECH in Internet of Things (IoT) - Academic Year: 2020-2021

About Program:

A 4-year full time B.TECH. Program in Internet of Things (IoT) combining elements of electronics and computer science, with emphasis on internet technologies, wireless communications, sensor devices, and cloud computing, that are key underpinning technologies necessary to run applications over the physical infrastructure of the Internet of Things. The programme equips students with strong skill for sensor network design and network planning for IoT. The program is tailored meticulously with the following objectives:

  • To equip with a solid theoretical foundation, systematic professional knowledge and strong practical skills in the fields of electronics engineering, computer technology and communications networks, that underpin a wide range of applications in the Internet of Things.

  • To provide expertise in the following four pillars: hardware, software, wireless communications and cybersecurity & privacy.

  • To collaborate with Industry and Research Laboratories through projects, internships enabling the students to explore, apply various directions of learning.

  • To acquire skills in relevant areas in scientific research, technological development, product design and professional management in the IoT field.

Scope of Internet of Things:

Internet of Things (IoT) is creating an environment of convergence in the society. This technology environment brings a paradigm shift in our professional and personal life. As a connected environment, IoT adds customer value and loyalty. Today, IoT is being implemented everywhere which is of human concern like smart city, smart environment, security, smart business process, smart agriculture, home automation and healthcare.

For many, the IoT is the “next big thing.” But, in reality, the IoT is already here — simply consider the smart car, smart home, and wearable technology examples

Internet of Things (IoT) Market Potential:

  • The Internet of Things (IoT) has a potential economic impact of $2.7 to $6.2 T until 2025. (McKinsey)

  • The cellular IoT connections is forecasted to grow at 25% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) till 2025. (Ericssion)

  • Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) is expected to top $60 trillion during the next 15 years.(Forbes)

  • The total revenue generated from IoT industry would be USD 300 billion and the connected devices would be 27 billion by the year end 2020 globally. (Gartner)

Although the IoT future is bright, there are some real challenges that must be addressed by businesses and industries in order for the IoT to achieve its full potential.India is rapidly growing as an IoT hub. Although, the country began its IoT journey much later than developed economies, its installed base of connected units is expected to grow at a rate much faster than them. According to a Deloitte report, the IoT units in India are expected to see a rapid growth of ~32x to reach 1.9 billion units by 2020, from its current base of 60 million. As a result, the Indian IoT market is expected to grow ~7x to move from US$ 1.3 billion in 2016 to US$ 9 billion by 2020 (Fig. 1). Key technology factors enabling IoT adoption in India include sensors, networks, standards, augmented intelligence and augmented behaviour.
