The Internet of Things [IoT] is a computing concept describing the inter-connectivity and collaboration of a wide variety of everyday physical objects connected via the internet.  Rapid IoT development has been driven by ongoing research and technological advances (notably in 5G mobile communications and in Artificial Intelligence). IoT technologies are enabling a wide range of business opportunities in the context of “smart” homes, neighbourhoods and cities and in the exploitation of intelligent infrastructure and services, in areas such as transport, power and healthcare.

IoT systems involve the convergence of multiple technologies, existing and new, including Sensors & Actuators, Low-energy Communication, Networking and Cloud, Big Data & Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Security and Application Deployment and Management.

There are two intakes onto the Electronic and Computer Technology programme of the Dublin City University , in February and September, and flexible study options are provided. Due to the scheduling of project deadlines, full-time students who start in September can complete the programme within 12 months, while full-time students who start in February can complete the programme within 18 months.


Opportunities will arise in Irish and International high-tech industry roles, including:

  • Technology Evangelist 
  • Research, Development and Innovation (RD&I) Officer
  • Management Information Systems Director
  • Computer and Information Research Scientist
  • IoT Systems Architect
  • Computer Systems Analyst
  • Application Developer
  • Systems Architects

Graduates from programmes in the School have been employed by small-to-medium (SME) companies and many multinationals including Google, Intel, Texas Instruments, IBM, Jaguar Land Rover (JLR) and Amazon.

The skills learned, however, are fundamental and can also be applied to many other disciplines. In addition, the Masters Project will also greatly improve the graduate's employment potential.
