IoT Connecting Things

The first course, Connecting Things, focuses on identifying, designing, prototyping, and presenting an IoT solution that securely solves a current business or social problem.


Students will develop the interdisciplinary skillsets required to prototype an IoT solution for a specific business case with a strong focus on the security considerations for emerging technologies. Tools: Raspberry Pi, Arduino, Prototyping Lab, and Packet Tracer.


Upon completing this course, the learner will be able to meet these overall objectives:

  • Learn basic prototyping techniques
  • Learn basic Python programming
  • Build an end-to-end prototype
  • Build an IoT Systems solution
  • Diagram a business model for a given business or social endeavor using the Business Model Canvas
  • Understand and explain the concepts, opportunities and challenges of digital transformation using IoT
  • Interconnect sensors/actuators, microcontrollers (Arduino), Single Board Computers (Raspberry Pi) and cloud services (Cisco Spark restful API) to create an end-toend IoT system
  • Understand the relevant aspects of cybersecurity and privacy for an IoT solution
  • Understand how digitalization is changing vertical markets such as manufacturing, energy, and smart cars
  • Use simulation tools (Packet Tracer) to create end-to-end IoT system


The course contains these components:

  • Things and Connections
  • Sensors, Actuators and microcontrollers
  • Software is Everywhere
  • Fog Networks and Cloud Computing
  • IoT Applications in Business
  • Create an IoT Solution


  • Connecting Things students should have a basic understanding of how to network devices in a LAN and connect them to the internet; an ability to solve basic algorithmic problems using a programming language; knowledge of basic physics concepts such as current, voltage, resistance, and power; and a familiarity with Cisco Packet Tracer

Career pathways include: IT/technical support, field service technician, help desk technician, network support technician, and more.


The course is delivered in 30-40-hour training instructor-led.

Classes are usually held one times a week on three-hour sessions or two times a week on one-hour sessions.


Fundamental knowledge of any programming language with exposure to variables, arithmetic, logic, loops, and functions Fundamental knowledge of physics covering current, voltage, resistance, and power.
