IoT soon to feature in Andhra Engineering Syllabus

Recognizing the significance of IoT and how the future will be shaped by this technology, early this year, Andhra Pradesh Cabinet has approved the first-of-its-kind policy on Internet of Things (IoT) with the objective of making the state an IoT Hub by 2020. Andhra Pradesh government also acknowledges the fact that talented IoT professionals will be needed to fulfill this dream.

This IoT policy aims at creating 50,000 IoT jobs across different IoT verticals. And being aware of the fact that IoT has a long stint and is here to stay, AP government understands that educating and grooming the youth about IoT concepts is a necessity.

In line with this, the Andhra State education department plans to upgrade the syllabus for engineering and polytechnic courses. The education department plans to introduce the concepts about Internet of Things (IoT) in the new syllabus with the aim of familiarizing students with the IoT technology.

The Andhra State education department has already included some IoT concepts in the syllabus of first year for both engineering and polytechnic courses. Now the department plans to upgrade it and launch the modified syllabus soon.

Also the faculty needs to be abreast with the IoT concepts and hence to teach the IoT concepts, Institute of Engineers India (IEI) will be conducting special workshops for the selected faculties of 226 engineering colleges in the state.

The Institute of Engineers India (IEI), Andhra Pradesh state center, has also organized a national seminar on ‘Intelligent system for more connected world – Internet of Things’. The experts from the field of IoT, part of the conference, were of the opinion that optimisation of IoT devices in all fields can yield best performance results.

 Introducing the concept of IoT in the syllabus is a welcome move by the AP state education department. This will help students in being aware and understanding the basics of IoT. Also these skill sets will help them in choosing a career in IoT, adding to the pool of talented IoT professionals.
