UC Irvine Division of Continuing Education Introduces New Online Ambient Computing and Internet of Things Program




IRVINE, CA — (Marketwired) — 08/10/17 — From smart homes, to self-driving cars to Wi-Fi connected pacemakers, more and more devices now include smaller and smaller microcomputers which control an ever increasing number of sensors that collect a vast array of information from the world around us — with that, the demand for technical professionals who can leverage the connection between the physical world and the digital world is growing exponentially. Seeing this increasing need, the (DCE) introduces a new online to provide students with the knowledge and skills required to take advantage of this next major shift in technologies and the growth in job demand. This program is ideal for those who are looking to build foundational knowledge in Ambient Computing and Internet of Things (IoT) to improve their business operations, for those that desire to increase their career options and for industry professionals that are interested in learning more about practical applications of Ambient Computing and the Internet of Things.

“The tools, technologies, platforms and languages used to create new connected devices are not only becoming more complex, but are being utilized much more frequently as well,” said Dave Dimas, Ph.D., director of engineering, sciences, and information technology at UC Irvine DCE. “Participants that earn a specialized studies in Ambient Computing and the Internet of Things: Applications and Opportunities will understand how best to leverage this technology and create solutions that focus on the benefits of simple interactivity and large-scale connectivity.”

Program participants will gain the knowledge and skills required to take advantage of this next major shift in technologies by exploring the tools, technologies, platforms and languages used to create exciting new connected devices. The three required courses offered include:

– Offered this Fall quarter with the online course starting on Sept. 18, this course will introduce students to Ambient Computing and IoT. Coursework will include topics such as smart networked devices, augmented and mixed realities and wearable computing. Participants will then use their knowledge to create an idea for their own Ambient/IoT device.

– In this course, participants will receive an overview of current components used in typical IoT devices and trends for the future. Students will use both the Arduino and Raspberry Pi hardware and software platforms and discover how these platforms communicate and control smart systems and learn how to build cutting-edge hardware systems using the Raspberry Pi platform.

– This course will provide an overview of networking fundamentals essential to IoT device designs. Students will learn how to design and improve security systems in IoT devices that will help increase the overall security of the devices.
