Master of Science in Internet of Things

Multimillion-dollar investments from public agencies and the private sector will drive the growth of Internet of Things careers for years to come. Northeastern's Master of Science in Internet of Things meets the growing demand for skilled researchers and specialized professionals that can lead the development of the Internet of Things—a globally interconnected continuum of untethered devices and objects interacting with the physical environment, people, and each other.

Developed collaboratively by Northeastern's Institute for the Wireless Internet of Things, the College of Engineering's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the Khoury College of Computer Sciences, the interdisciplinary program integrates topics including nanoelectronics, embedded systems, communications, networking, signal processing, data analytics, machine learning, policy, and entrepreneurship. Through a combination of coursework, supervised research spanning multiple colleges at Northeastern University, and/or industry experience, you will be prepared to design and implement the autonomous wireless networked systems of the future.
