Cisco IoT Website Banner (1)

Cisco Networking Academy’s IoT Fundamentals curriculum provides students with a comprehensive understanding of the Internet of Things (IoT). It develops foundational skills using hands-on lab activities that stimulate the students in applying creative problem-solving and rapid prototyping in the interdisciplinary domain of electronics, networking, security, data analytics, and business. The student-centric approach translates into the student being able to ideate, design, prototype and present an IoT solution for an identified business or society need.

The IoT Fundamentals 2.0 curriculum is designed for Cisco Networking Academy® students who are seeking to acquire the foundational skills and knowledge prominently required across the emerging digitization technologies using a hands-on, problem-solving approach. The IoT Fundamentals curriculum has been designed to be flexible in order to adapt appropriately for students at many education levels and types of institutions. It has already been favorably tested in secondary schools, career and technical schools, universities, and colleges, and is included as coursework in planned new technical university IoT-related curriculum in some countries. Government workforce retraining initiatives, strategic workforce planning initiatives, IT professionals, Data Scientists, Networking Engineers, military, Maker spaces, and community-based training centers will also likely find value in this curriculum.

The interconnection of previously unconnected devices to the internet and the analysis of the data they generate are having a disruptive and transformational effect on every industry around the world. IoT is the technology that is narrowing the distance between the physical world and the digital world , and creating unprecedented automation in every industry. In parallel, this newly digitized world generates an increasing amount of data that can be mined to gain insights or automate smart behaviors. The exponential growth of data is increasing the demand for professionals with the skills to work on this ocean of data. IoT, Big Data and analytics are the prominent driver of what is becoming known as the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Perhaps even more importantly, these technologies can be applied to tackle global social problems in many areas such as optimizing our global energy usage, monitoring the environment for natural disasters, improving our health and well-being, and personalizing education.
