Need for the Course

The Internet of Everything (IoE) is connecting people, processes, data and things to bring forth innovation, faster decision making, and improved growth and profits for industry while bringing higher living standards for all those touched by this global trend. World Bank Studies estimate that over the next ten years there will be two million unfilled ICT-related jobs globally. To connect the unconnected, it is estimated that 220,000 new engineers are required every year from 2014-2022.
