Curriculum Design Requirements and Challenges for the First Bachelor’s Degree on IoT in the US

Abstract : Internet of Things (IoT) devices have become part of our lives through their roles in smart and connected living. As they are increasingly deployed in various industries and residential areas, they are now readily accessible to the end users who need to manage them on a daily basis. However, management of these devices includes many aspects such as hardware troubleshooting, operating systems updates, security configuration, connectivity maintenance and scripting, etc. Given the complexities of these tasks, there is a need to educate and train technical people who will eventually form a new workforce to handle these issues on behalf of the ordinary users. This brings the need for a new IoT related curriculum that will serve to undergraduate students to acquire the above skills. In this paper, we present the first undergrad IoT curriculum in the US offered by Florida International University (FIU) by discussing the requirements and challenges. We explain how this new curriculum addresses the key aspects of IoT technologies and opportunities that come with the proposed IoT degree. We also highlight other related issues regarding the focus of this type of degrees and interdisciplinary aspects with other academic units and industry.
