The Internet of Things

The Internet of Things is a new and fast expanding area in Computer Science, technology and engineering: it concerns the new generation of systems of networked devices that are becoming capable of sensing, transmitting and acting on data: smart homes, smart cities, smart industries, and so on. A series of reports, among which several published by Gartner, place the IOT as a new and transformative technology domain that will require millions of developers worldwide by 2020.

Entry requirements

Candidates should have, or expect to gain, at least a good upper second-class honours degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or other subjects that include a strong element of both mathematics and computing. Industrial experience may compensate for lesser degrees or lack of technical qualification, as will demonstrated programming skills and a strong ability to learn. All applications are treated on an individual basis.
