The MIT xPRO course "Internet of Things (IoT): Design and Applications" is designed for professionals from any field or background who want to embrace an IoT mindset and create user-centric, future-ready products and services. This non-technical program provides a roadmap for leveraging IoT principles to drive business value and innovation.
The course highlights the growing importance of IoT and its potential impact on enterprises, governments, utilities, and society as a whole. With the number of connected IoT devices expected to reach 27 billion by 2025 and an estimated value of up to USD 12.6 trillion by 2030, there is a need for individuals and organizations to understand and leverage IoT opportunities.
The program is suitable for managers, department heads, product managers, product designers, and technology professionals. It helps them understand the fundamental principles of IoT implementation, its impact on product and business design, and the technologies that support IoT adoption. The program also addresses legal, ethical, privacy, and security concerns related to IoT.
Throughout the six-week program, participants will learn to describe the global shift in product and business strategy driven by IoT mindsets, explore successful examples of IoT products and business strategies, and examine the legal and security considerations for IoT-based product design. They will also gain insights from renowned MIT faculty and experts.
Key takeaways from the course include understanding the impact of IoT on product and business design, identifying IoT hardware, software, and data technologies, and developing IoT-centric solutions. Participants will earn a certificate from MIT xPRO upon completion of the program.
The course is divided into six modules covering topics such as the introduction to IoT, connectivity technologies, IoT mindsets, data privacy and security, applying IoT mindsets to product design, and applying IoT mindsets to business design. Each module includes activities and assignments to demonstrate understanding and application of concepts.
By completing the MIT xPRO "Internet of Things (IoT): Design and Applications" course, participants will be equipped with the knowledge and skills necessary to navigate the IoT landscape, develop innovative IoT-centric products and services, and drive business growth through an IoT mindset.
