Program Coursework

This program is anchored with Tech Core, a curriculum designed to help you build a foundation of interdisciplinary skills across three areas of interest – Engineering Technology, Information Technology and Software and Information Systems. When you specialize your Information Technology and Networking bachelor's degree in Mobile and Networked Devices, your coursework at DeVry University may include these courses:

Information Technology and Mobility Essentials

Networked Devices and Embedded Systems

Ecosystem of The Internet of Things

Information Security and Mobile Devices

Information Technology and Mobility Essentials

Coursework addresses enterprise networking and internet-connected devices designed to sense, communicate and control machines in the home, mobile environments and industrial applications, as well as in large-scale data mining. Students examine IoT architecture, as well as analyze big data and wireless connectivity of machine-to-machine communication.

Networked Devices and Embedded Systems

This course covers networked devices and programming techniques that make up operational terminal points. Topics include wired and wireless technologies; wearable computers that can access the Internet; and small devices embedded in larger machines.

Ecosystem of The Internet of Things

This course focuses on the Internet of Things (IoT) as a networked system. Coursework examines meshes, wireless networks, sensor nets and other configurations using low-power, low-cost modern devices interconnected into a robust system. Also addressed are data mining systems that gather information from many sources and identify patterns within it. IoT applications in which devices function and communicate with the Internet are explored.

Information Security and Mobile Devices

This course addresses information security on mobile devices. Topics include information to be protected; risks involved; types of mobile devices; information at rest and in motion; encryption; attack scenario vulnerabilities; and aspects of defense-in-depth controls.

1 As part of this program, one complimentary laptop is provided to students enrolled in the Associate of Information Technology and Networking, Bachelor’s of Information Technology and Networking, Bachelor’s of Software Development, Bachelor’s of Electronics Engineering Technology/Engineering Technology – Electronics and Bachelor’s of Computer Information Systems. The laptop is issued during the student’s second session. Certain restrictions apply.

All students enrolled in site-based programs will be required to take some coursework online and, for some programs and locations, a substantial portion of the program may be required to be completed online.
