  • Any engineering student who want to work in the area of Internet of things, irrespective of the branch (Computer, IT, Electronics, Mechanical, Electrical, Civil, Chemical, Textile) would be able to learn and implement it in respective fields
  • Students should have basic knowledge of any programming language like C / C++, Java, Python, C#


Arduino IDE software, Thonny Editor, and Python

This course uses Arduino IDE software, Thonny Editor, and Python for developing, and executing the programs that would be developed during the course. Some knowledge of C / C++ / Python would be beneficial but its not a constraint as all basics of programming in C / C+ and Python are covered in the course itself. So even if one has no background in software development, he / she can easily learn the basic programming skills required for completing this course and then would develop small IoT applications that could be further expanded to build real life IoT applications with some additional reading, and practice.
