Program Description:

The Internet of Things (IoT) is comprised of billions of traditionally non-Internet-enabled devices that have been embedded with technological capabilities to allow them to communicate over the Internet. Ireland has emerged as a European hub of IoT, with universities, big businesses, multinational corporations, and small startups all contributing to the country’s IoT ecosystem and looking to explore and exploit the technology.
In this three-credit course students will be introduced to the various technologies making up the IoT including processors, networks, operating systems, software, storage, analytics, and security. In the pre-travel sessions, we will explore the various hardware, software, and network components of IoT and how they work together; discuss IoT devices we use or interact with every day (wearable technology, smart speakers, smart home technology, etc.); and build and use our own IoT devices. In Ireland, students will meet with experts in the field; visit companies and tour facilities that contribute their technology to make Ireland’s IoT possible; and visit cultural sites using IoT technology to collect, transport, and analyze data. In addition, we will discuss the ethical implications of IoT technology, including issues of privacy, informed consent, information security, and the haves-vs-have-nots.
