Please note: DeVry’s IoT kit has evolved; students no longer utilize a tangible take-home kit –you now have access to cloud-based IoT projects that make it easy to put theory into practice from anywhere. Want to learn more? Visit our Tech Empowered Learning page.
Learning has become flexible in today’s world. That's why students in DeVry University's technology programs have the ability to be hands on wherever they are thanks to our take-home lab kit based on the Internet of Things (IoT).
“It gives students the ability to do their labs anytime, anywhere,” says James Karagiannes, Ph.D., professor/faculty chair in Engineering and Information Systems at DeVry and an integral member of the team that designed the kit. “It’s a big deal for our students because many of them are continuing their education, have been in the military and are coming back to train, or something like that. We have a lot of adult learners, many with full-time jobs. This is a more flexible, hands-on option for them.”
The kit is just one aspect of a sweeping overhaul to the tech curriculum, which includes Engineering Technology, Information Technology, and Software & Information Systems. The newly organized and designed courses build interdisciplinary skills for today’s IoT-based digital lifestyle.
The transformation is predicated around a curriculum that really matters in today’s workforce, according to William Phillips, Ph.D., Associate National Dean of Engineering & Information Systems, Health Sciences and Media Arts & Technology.
“We picked one of the most obvious themes out there,” Phillips says. “It touches so many disciplinary fields, which our tech programs obviously do. Whether you’re talking about big data, cloud, mobile technology, or new and improved digital devices, it’s easy to add on to just about any discipline and make it fit into that scheme.”
