Objectives and competences

The Internet of Things (Internet of Things, known as IoT) is a new technological world where millions of objects can perceive, communicate and share information, with each other, with the cloud and all of them connected in a network. A common definition of IoT describes it as a network of physical objects that exchange information with each other to make the life of the end user easier without the end user having asked or made any interaction.

This master has a clear professional orientation and aims to train expert engineers in the field of the design of electronic devices focused on the IoT.
