Module: Introduction to IoT (E1-4)

Study level Bachelor
ECTS credits 3-6
Study forms Hybrid or fully online
Module aims To give an introductory overview of IoT to students, where and how IoT solutions can be implemented, and what type of benefits implementing an IoT solution might offer. The module aims to give practical hands-on experience in creating simple IoT systems
Pre-requirements Motivation to study IoT, recommended to have basics on programming, electronics and mechatronics
Learning outcomes After completing this module, the student:

Type of assessment The prerequisite of a positive grade is a positive evaluation of module topics and presentation of practical work results with required documentation
Blended learning The practice is divided into two distinct parts. In the first part, students work independently to acquaint themselves with existing IoT devices, culminating in a comprehensive report. This phase aims to lay the foundational knowledge necessary for the subsequent task.
The second part of the practice is conducted collaboratively as a team. Students are tasked with developing an IoT solution to address a specified problem. The problem's thematic focus may centre around concepts such as 'green campus' or 'green university,' encouraging solutions contributing to environmental sustainability.
Upon completion of the second part, students must deliver a presentation detailing their collaborative efforts and the developed IoT system's functionality. This presentation serves not only as a demonstration of the practical application of their solution but also as an opportunity for peer and instructor feedback.
