About the Program

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 program is best suited for

IIITH Living Lab: Where Theory Meets Practice

Outstanding projects from this program may get access to India’s one-of-a-kind IIITH Living Lab, a user-centered, iterative, open-innovation ecosystem. The Living Lab enables expertise in IoT for research and deployment, generates data for research, and provides a test bench for IoT based implementations. It is a live setup of a building, campus or facility that gets used for its intended purposes along with being a ‘living’ test bed for research and innovation. All data coming from the Living Lab is used to develop or validate new solutions and can be tested in the same live setup.

This program provides a unique opportunity for select participants to put their learning to the test in a live setting, thus enhancing the practical outcomes. They can use the Living Lab to test and deploy their projects, prepare product pitches to angel investors, and assess the product-market fit of their MVP.
