After completion of 4th semester in B.E. Electronics & Communication Engineering, students have the opportunity to pursue specialisation in Embedded Systems & Internet of Things (IoT).


The explosive growth of the ‘Internet of Things’ is changing our world. At Chitkara University, students can pursue specialisation in Internet of Things (IoT), which is among the newest innovations in the field of information technology, and can change the way we receive information. This technology connects devices to each other, and to the people, who use it in their daily life.
Embedded systems are gaining importance in all aspects of Engineering. It is expected that in the near future no technical device will exist without software-based embedded information technology, based on standardised micro-controller cores. This implies that the design of embedded real-time operating systems will play a dominant role in this field.


As digital transformation continues to accelerate, IoT is at the center of this change – supporting organisations’ digital journeys and offering professionals exciting career opportunities. Research and advisory company, Gartner, Inc., predicted that 8.4 billion connected things will be in use worldwide in 2017, up by 31 per cent from 2016, and will reach 20.4 billion by 2020. In India alone, more than 1000 tech start-ups are engaged in IoT-related projects, offering plenty of job opportunities. Some roles include:

  • IoT Engineer
  • IoT App Developer
  • IoT Solution Architect
  • Citizen IoT Scientist
  • Machine Learning Engineer
  • IoT System Administrator

With this specialisation students will learn the importance of IoT in the society, the current components of typical IoT devices and trends for the future. Student will:

  • IoT design considerations, constraints and interfacing between the physical world and your device will also be covered.
  • Make design trade-offs between hardware and software.
  • Cover key components of networking to ensure that students understand how to connect their device to the Internet.
  • Study how various trends have enabled the Internet of Things, and how it changes the way design is performed.
  • Participate in regular open house interactions to discuss some of the ramifications that IoT is having on society today.
