Top IoT Career Opportunities for Professionals
The global IoT market is projected to reach US$ 1.3 trillion by 2026 (Fortune). However, the growth of IoT must be seen in the context of its potential when used in combination with other technologies like AI/ML and Big Data. The existing installed base of 5 Bn plus smartphones, 2 Bn plus personal computers, and 1 Bn plus tablets, when connected, indicate a massive market for IoT transformation.
Though IoT projects are top of priority for organizations, nearly 75% of them take twice as long to complete because of IoT talent shortage, according to Gartner. The industry needs professionals with expertise in the technologies and processes around IoT to fulfill its ambitions of interconnectivity.
The PG Certificate in IoT and Smart Analytics enables tech professionals and select fresh graduates to build expertise in these disruptive technologies from IIIT Hyderabad, among India's top-ranked engineering and research institution.

The Internet of Things (IoT) has become a mainstream disruptive technology. McKinsey predicts IoT will have an economic impact between $4 trillion and $11 trillion by 2025.
For several companies, investing in connected technologies like IoT has become a necessity for survival and business continuity. IoT is already disrupting both the consumer (retail, healthcare, and services) and industrial sectors (transportation, water, oil and gas, agriculture, and manufacturing). Increased focus on remote-based monitoring of the workforce, growing adoption of innovative payment technologies, and rising demand for wearable devices are driving IoT’s market growth.
To successfully manage and navigate such disruptions, companies need professionals with deep IoT expertise in massive numbers. Hence gaining a firm understanding of IoT computing is more relevant today than ever.
As connected devices rapidly proliferate industries worldwide, the IoT space is witnessing significant growth. It is predicted that there will be 41 Billion IoT devices by 2027 (Business Insider). According to International Data Corporation (IDC), worldwide spending on software and hardware around IoT will see a growth from $726 billion in 2019 to $1.1 trillion in 2023. The total spending on consumer and industrial IoT technology is expected to pass $1 trillion by 2022 (IDC).
However, there is a severe shortage of professionals with the right expertise to manage and execute IoT projects. Research (Immersat) shows that around 47% of organizations do not possess the right IoT skills and therefore outsource everything. Gartner predicts that 75% of IoT projects take twice as long because of the IoT talent shortage. This is creating massive opportunities for companies, entrepreneurs, and professionals in the IoT space. IoT has the potential to create 10-15 million jobs (The ET) in India alone.
Hence this is the right time for tech professionals to invest in building expertise in IoT technology.
With IoT capabilities, tech professionals can explore several roles including
A:Participants get to work on the latest tools and technologies including Schematic Design, PCB, 3D modeling, Arduino IDE, NodeMCU, oneM2M, Thingspeak, AWS, and Cloud.
The program is delivered in an experiential learning format that includes LIVE online faculty-led Live interactive sessions, capstone projects, mentorship, and hackathons.
The program will help build expertise, enabling you to launch a career in the IoT domain. The roles may vary, considering your professional background and industry experience.
