About the Course

This course can also be taken for academic credit as ECEA 5385, part of CU Boulder’s Master of Science in Electrical Engineering degree. Developing tomorrow's industrial infrastructure is a significant challenge. This course goes beyond the hype of consumer IoT to emphasize a much greater space for potential embedded system applications and growth: The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), also known as Industry 4.0. Cisco’s CEO stated: “IoT overall is a $19 Trillion market. IIoT is a significant subset including digital oilfield, advanced manufacturing, power grid automation, and smart cities”. This is part 1 of the specialization. The primary objective of this specialization is to closely examine emerging markets, technology trends, applications and skills required by engineering students, or working engineers, exploring career opportunities in the IIoT space. The structure of the course is intentionally wide and shallow: We will cover many topics, but will not go extremely deep into any one topic area, thereby providing a broad overview of the immense landscape of IIoT. There is one exception: We will study security in some depth as this is the most important topic for all "Internet of Things" product development. In this course students will learn : * What Industry 4.0 is and what factors have enabled the IIoT * Key skills to develop to be employed in the IIoT space * What platforms are, and also market information on Software and Services * What the top application areas are (examples include manufacturing and oil & gas) * What the top operating systems are that are used in IIoT deployments * About networking and wireless communication protocols used in IIoT deployments * About computer security; encryption techniques and secure methods for insuring data integrity and authentication...

This course is comprehensive, covering both theoretical and hands-on experience with security. I personally enjoyed the hands-on assignment on cryptography

A broad overview of the development on IOT markets and then some details on the important players on each layer of the IOT stack. The security module initially looked challenging but once you I started to develop a security mindset, I really enjoyed get acquainted to basics of authentication and encryption on hardware and different software layer. I applied these learnings by reading through security measures on Zigbee 3.0 standard.

I really liked this class a lot. I appreciate any professor who brings real-world experience into the classroom, especially in Engineering. I did feel like the slides had too much text on them sometimes, but overall this was a very good class. I would highly recommend it whether you are new to the industry or a veteran.

Amazing course with all sorts of in-depth details and those tiny little details that can make a lot of changes. But the video quality and presentation could be a little better, apart from that everything else was very insightful.

The course is pretty good but it has got old now as we're in 2023 now and the stats and all the data used is from 2016 so it's kinda outdated. Otherwise the information is highly useful and was a great experience to learn about IIOT and Security.

I do not agree when a prestigious institution uses the recordings of a conference as a course, specifically for IoT I did not like it. However, in the case of Tableu I think it was excellent.

Los videos me parecen de baja calidad, con mucho ruido de fondo y algunas presentaciones no estan actualizadas, con temas ya viejos,
