IoT - Essential

We live in an increasingly connected world filled with sensors collecting and communicating data about us. Today, IoT is everywhere and is silently changing the way things have been working. There’s a huge economic potential offered by the IoT. It is estimated that by 2025 there’ll be 75 billion objects connected to the Internet.

Star Expert IoT Security (SEIS) is a certification program that introduces learners to the key concepts of Internet of Things (IoT). The program helps the learners acquire a fundamental understanding of IoT systems from sensors to SoC board integration, further to constrained IoT environment. The SEIS program also guides the learners to create web interface to IoT system and perform data analytics on the data collected from millions of sensors.
