Language of teaching: English

Master Internet of Things (IoT)

Responsibles

The Internet of Things (IoT) represents a new stage in the digital revolution, fully contributing to the construction of a digital society. Several sectors of the digital society use or will use the internet of objects to improve deployment, exploitation and industrialization procedures. These include intelligent transport, smart grids, smart city, industry 4.0, and so on. The issues concerning the mastery of the technologies and processes around the internet of objects are enormous and require a very high level of expertise with cutting-edge skills in multi disciplinary areas. 

Key Words: Sensors, Actuators, Low-energy communication, Big Data, Data Semantic, Machine Learning, Security, Business Intelligence

Objectives:

  • Design tools for processing and analyzing large amounts of data from sensors;
  • Design and develop IoT applications and services adapted to industrial needs
  • Understand and design communication mechanisms adapted to the constraints of the sensors (energy consumption, lack of computing capacities)
  • Acquire dual competences technical courses in advanced fields (data exploitation, software development, communication networks in constrained environments, Machine Learning, sensor security) associated with courses in Innovation, Project Management, Entrepreneurship ...

Project 6

Supervised Semester Projects are based on real-case studies of industrial relevance. They combine a blend of theoretical and practical work (developing new prototypes and tools, testing new technologies, assessing current systems and solutions…). Students can work individually or in group of 2/3. The expected workload is 100hours of individual work per semester. A defense is organized at the end of each semester. Projects provide students with hands-on skills by allowing them to put concepts into practice.
