Today, the International Institute of Information Technology, Hyderabad (IIITH) and TalentSprint announced the launch of the PG Certificate in IoT & Smart Analytics. The PG Certificate program is a 9-month program and is designed both for IoT engineers who want to master analytics as well as other tech professionals and managers from industries disrupted by heavy IoT adoption.
According to reports, a team of faculty leading Smart City research at IIITH will teach participants through live, interactive online classes, and mentor them as they apply learnings on leading industry projects.
Announcing the program, Prof P J Narayanan, Director, IIITH, said: “IIIT Hyderabad, with its deep focus on Smart City research, has set up several IoT verticals on air quality, building energy, water quantity and quality, street lighting, etc. The Living Lab, the first of its kind India-EU collaboration project, provides a platform for learners, faculty, and industry to collaborate and build new ideas.”
Narayanan added, “ The PG Certificate in IoT & Smart Analytics, IIITH’s third program in partnership with TalentSprint, is a unique opportunity for working professionals to learn from our world-class faculty and work on industry-leading projects, some of which might qualify for testing and deployment in our Living Lab. While the first six months of the program will teach foundations and include simple experiments, the last three months will be hands-on application-based learning. At the end of nine months, participants will gain confidence and expertise needed to lead AI-powered IoT deployments in their organisations.”
Replying to the comment, Dr Santanu Paul, CEO & Managing Director, TalentSprint said, “TalentSprint offers unique executive education programs to solve the most challenging and pertinent industry problems. All our programs, offered in partnership with top-tier academic institutes, have consistently reported extremely high participant satisfaction. The PG Certificate in IoT & Smart Analytics will meet the industry’s critical need for technical experts required to fulfil its ambitions of interconnectivity. Through this program, we aim to upskill 1000+ professionals over the next 3-5 years. I am delighted to announce this program, and deeply honoured by IIITH’s continued trust in us.”
Applications for the first cohort of the PG Level Certification Program in IoT and Smart Analytics, which starts in June 2021, is now open.
