Do you want to upskill in engineering? DCU is offering four Springboard+ courses, in the Internet of Things, Sustainable Energy Systems, Decarbonisation and Engineering Technologies.

The courses offer flexible online and offline learning opportunities to suit all needs.

Graduate Certificate in the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a computing concept describing the inter-connectivity and collaboration of everyday physical objects connected via the Internet.  IoT technologies are enabling a wide range of business opportunities in the context of smart homes, neighbourhoods and cities and in the exploitation of intelligent infrastructure and services, in areas such as transport, power and healthcare.

Ireland is a global centre for ground breaking advancements in IoT. There is strong demand for IoT professionals but there is a major skills gap in this area. This Graduate Certificate in IoT aims to provide graduates with knowledge, skills and competencies in the key areas of real-time signal processing, data analysis and machine learning, connected embedded systems and network programming to enhance career opportunities in the ICT sector.
