The document offers sample curricula for Bachelor and Master level studies (see figure below) in the rapidly evolving field of the Internet of Things (IoT). These examples serve as a foundational framework that educational institutions worldwide can adapt and expand upon to design their unique study modules/courses.

The Bachelor study offers an introductive module titled “Introduction to IoT,” which is segmented into four primary topics. This structure ensures a focused and in-depth exploration of each topic area within the realm of the Internet of Things, providing students with a robust foundation in this innovative field. The topics are:

  • IoT Overview (1 ECTS)
  • IoT Programming and Frameworks (2 ECTS)
  • IoT Hardware (2 ECTS)
  • IoT Communications and Networking (1 ECTS)

The structure offers the flexibility to tailor the module according to the needs of educational institutions. Schools and universities can choose to cover all of the topics for a total of 6 ECTS (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System) credits or opt for a focused topic such as “IoT Overview,” which awards 1 ECTS credit. This adaptable approach ensures that each educational institution can provide a learning experience that aligns with its educational objectives and the goals of its students.

The Master's level study is structured into six distinct modules, each designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the subject matter. This modular approach ensures a robust and focused educational experience tailored to foster expertise and specialization in key areas of interest.

  1. IoT Design Methodologies
  2. IoT Architectures, inc. Networks
  3. Data Analytics
  4. IoT Security
  5. Blockchain in IoT
  6. IoT Green Design

Each Master level study module is designed to award 3 ECTS credits. For added flexibility, there is also the option to amalgamate certain modules to suit individual academic requirements or interests better.

The following section delineates the architecture of the curriculum module in detail:

  • Study level - provides the study level for which the module is designed.
  • ECTS credits - how many points can be obtained to complete the module.
  • Study form - explains where the module can take place: class, online, or hybrid.
  • Module aims - gives the overall goal(s) or purpose(s) of the module.
  • Pre-requirements - outlines pre-requirements for the current module, which the student must meet.
  • Learning outcomes - lists what students are expected to know, understand, and be able to do after completing the module.
  • Topics - listed subjects taught in the module. They are based on the books that were made for the IOT-OPEN.EU Reloaded project.
  • Type of assessment - a general description of how assessment is carried out in the module.
  • Blended learning - the module's overall framework and student tasks are described.
  • References to literature - a list of books, online books, articles, etc., are given, which helps to improve knowledge in the module.
  • Lab equipment - a list of equipment, software, etc., used in the module to perform local laboratory work(s).
  • Virtual lab - link(s) to a virtual lab(s), which is/are used in the module to do laboratory work(s) remotely.
  • MOOC course - provides a link to a massive open online course made for the IoT-OPEN.EU Reloaded project. Students from all over the world can attend it.
