Internet of things is going to be present everywhere. In Smart refrigerators/pantries that use weight-based sensors and re-order food items, Fitness trackers using GPS devices, smart homes where lights, heat and air conditioning are remotely controlled, Security systems with face and voice recognition to gain entry etc.

Electronics industry stands to gain the maximum from the IoT revolution. Electronics manufacturers have been connecting devices and appliances for years. VLSI and embedded systems companies like Intel, Cisco as well as IT companies like Microsoft, Google are going in a big way in IoT. It’s easy to see what a huge opportunity the connected home is creating for the electronics industry.

The NorthCap University,Gurugram is offering B.Tech. Electronics and Communication Engineering with specialization in Internet of Things where students will be able to apply practical knowledge on IoT sensors, microcontrollers, networks, cloud computing and machine learning to develop IoT systems.
