About the course

Sensor systems are an innate part of IoT. They form the eyes, ears, nose and nerves of the smart network. Sensors have matured tremendously, improving from bulky, heavy and inaccurate peripherals, to now small, wireless and embedded electronics that are almost undetectable.

The three-day course is the first in the country to focus specifically on architectural design and optimisation of sensors network for smart applications and products and designed to equip both hardware and software engineers and professionals with a practical level of hardware design skills and thought process when taking on IoT-related projects.

This course will benefit professionals from almost any industry, ranging from transport to healthcare, manufacturing, education and even defence. Participants will gain theoretical knowledge, as well as engage in hands-on activities to reinforce their learning and newly acquired knowledge from the course.

This course is part of the Software Engineering & Design Series offered by NUS-ISS.
