Internet of Things

Program Overview 

The 100% online internet-of-things (IoT) concentration offers an area of specialization in the Interdisciplinary Master of Science in Engineering (MSE)/ Master of Science (MS) degree. This concentration focuses on analysis and design of IoT within a system of interrelated computer devices, mechanical and digital machines and sensors that connect and exchange data over communication networks. IoT is playing a significant role in modern society including smart cities, healthcare systems and social networks. Pursuing a Master of Science in Interdisciplinary Engineering with a concentration in IoT will prepare professional engineers to meet the demands of implementing IoT in complex engineering environments. 

Course Topical Areas: 

Computing Sensors
Embedded Systems Chip Design
Wireless Communications  

Degree Requirements with the Internet of Things Concentration

The Interdisciplinary Engineering (MSE or MS) degree requires 30 credit hours with at least 18 credits of Purdue, graduate level, engineering courses. The IoT concentration must be completed within these degree requirements. 

Any courses listed on our courses page will fulfill this requirement, including available non-engineering courses.

All questions regarding courses and transfer credits should be directed to a student’s academic advisor. 

Creating Your Plan of Study 

The MSE/MS master's program offers a wide range of flexibility in course options. After you begin your studies at Purdue, an academic adviser will help you create an Electronic Plan of Study (EPOS) to best fit your educational needs and career goals.     

The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements. This website is a knowledge source for specific requirements and completion.
