Are you in full-time employment but looking for a means to add value, and develop your career, by expanding your knowledge to include expertise in the Internet of Things (IoT)? Perhaps you have recently completed an undergraduate degree in engineering or computing, and, in doing so, have been exposed to the career potential afforded by an IoT specialism. 

Whatever your present circumstances, DCU’s part-time MSc in Electronic and Computer Technology (IoT) provides you with the skills to futureproof your career.

Delivered fully online

This course is part funded by Technology Ireland DIGITAL Skillnet, who are the Digital network of Skillnet Ireland and is delivered fully online. As a student of the programme, those already working within the sphere can avail of the opportunity to upskill and upgrade their knowledge of the IoT to achieve a breadth of knowledge of the full stack.

Perhaps your background is physical computing?  If so, the programme can help you to build upon your pre-existing knowledge to guide you in developing solutions to problems that extend software outside of the computer and into the real world.

The MSc in Electronic and Computer Technology (IoT) exposes you to the full IoT stack, right from devices interacting and capturing data from their environment to ultimately developing web and machine learning applications so that data can be fully analysed. 

This broad spectrum of knowledge is imparted, via this master's programme, through modules in topics ranging across connected embedded systems, network communications, blockchain technology, web application development and machine learning. 

To ensure the currency and relevance of the programme, each of these modules are taught by research-active experts in their respective fields, thereby guaranteeing that your qualification is aligned with the rapidly developing technologies of the future.

Whatever your personal circumstances or existing commitments, this master's programme provides you with a pathway to refresh your skillset.  With a strong track record of delivering innovative programmes, to large numbers of students, with a flexible mode of delivery since the 1990s, the School of Electronic Engineering is perfectly positioned to enable further study that works in harmony with the realities of day to day life. 

Ultimate flexibility

All modules are designed so that they can be taken on campus with lectures or fully online, allowing students ultimate flexibility to transition between modes as circumstances dictate. 

In addition, the programme also provides training pathways for students from different backgrounds and to support those returning to education after a long break.

By adding supportive modules to the programme in computer programming and mathematics, candidates from more traditional mechanical, electrical, process engineering backgrounds may apply, ensuring access to the skills required to enhance pre-existing qualifications in line with developments in IoT.

The Msc in IoT affords you the opportunity to swiftly enhance your career prospects and to meet, and indeed exceed, employer expectations. If you would like further information about this transformative programme, and the benefits it may provide for you, please visit our course page.
