Nasscom unveils courseware for honing IoT skills of techies

Bengaluru - Indian IT industry apex body Nasscom's sector skills council unveiled a courseware to impart skills in the Internet of Things (IoT) to the techies across the country.

"With the IoT revolution reshaping roles and businesses across verticals, we hope to create opportunities and re-skill the IT workforce. The courseware will draw the roadmap for the domain's growth with skilled professionals," said Nasscom Vice President Sandhya Chintala at the Design and Engineering summit here.

The courseware will provide an understanding of IoT in engineering education and help create employment prospects.

The course will cover IoT, its architecture and industry applications and use cases in diverse sectors such as aerospace, agriculture, automotive, construction, energy, healthcare, logistics, manufacturing, retail and transportation.

Course-end project work is a mandatory inclusion offering practical exposure. 

Industry professionals and experts from the world over discussed the impact of novel cloud technologies like Big Data, IoT and Industry 4.0 on the engineering research and development sector at the summit on 'Digital Engineering: Convergence of Disruptive Technologies'.
