What is the program about?
The Internet of Things Cyber Technician (IOTCT) program provides students with the skills and education to apply the Internet-of-Things (IOT) and programming concepts in the exciting fields of automation, robotics and cyber/network security. The curriculum balances theory and laboratory applications and provides students with a strong background in electronics, programmable logic controllers, robots, robotic programming, networking, and cybersecurity. These in-demand skills prepare graduates for careers in logistics, supply chain, automation, repair/support of existing computer systems, networks, and their associated software which utilize robots and/or automated systems. The IOTCT program provides students a quality education in state-of-the-art laboratories with courses taught by highly qualified faculty who possess industry experience. Those who wish to further their studies are well prepared to pursue a bachelor’s degree in Computer Engineering or Electronics and Computer Engineering Technology programs. This degree program contains one or more embedded certificates which will be automatically awarded when the certificate requirements are completed. If you do not want to receive the embedded certificate(s), please notify Registration and Student Records at firstname.lastname@example.org.
