“industry ready” - that's the key today, really, isn't it. So many new grads just can't get a job because of that awful catch 22 of "no job experience, no job." Any college that can get itself a reputation as a place where kids not only learn, but actually DO, is really doing their graduates a huge favor. I'd take that over a prestigious name any day.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
