The Master of Science in Cyber-Physical Systems with a concentration in the Internet of Things (IoT) prepares our graduates for a world of connected devices. This innovative multidisciplinary program is designed to meet the demand for a new kind of specialist, one who can engineer and develop new interactive services; acquire, fuse, and process the data collected from sensors, actuators, controllers, and other devices; and develop architectures to interconnect these elements as part of larger, more diverse systems. It is expected that careers in this rapidly evolving area will encompass industry sectors ranging from energy, healthcare, transportation, infrastructure, to manufacturing.
This concentration integrates the study of wireless networking, protocols, sensor networks, security, software development, embedded systems, data analytics, and big data to provide students with the knowledge and tools to develop IoT applications, to analyze and design IoT architectures for different application domains, and to develop data analytic tools to analyze the large amounts of data generated by the massive deployment of IoT devices.
The program is offered at Northeastern’s campus in Boston, MA and at the regional campus in Silicon Valley (San Jose, California). For 2019, new students admitted to the MS in Cyber-Physical Systems with a concentration in Internet of Things program at the Silicon Valley campus are eligible to receive a 25% tuition scholarship.
Note: A subset of program courses are available at the regional campus.
