Introduction to Internet of Things

Lecturer and exercises: Prof. Rasit Eskicioglu (University Manitoba, Canada)

Several marketing institutions estimate that the number of Internet-connected devices  (Internet of Things) will exceed 50 billion by the year 2030. This course will introduce the basic concepts, foundational principles and architectures behind the Internet of Things.

Topics will include:

  • Introduction to IoT
  • Hardware platforms
  • Software and application platforms
  • Communication technologies and protocols
  • Sensing and data analytics

In addition to the lectures, the exercises will complement the theoretical knowledge with hands-on experience about IoT devices, and will teach the students how to program them to collect transfer, and analyse the data.  A mini-project will further strengthen the learning.

This course is suitable for AI-SE master students and it will be taught in English. For further information, please contact Sascha Jungen (
