BE IoT Engineering

Course Information

The Internet of Things  (IoT) Engineering is an interdisciplinary bachelor’s degree programme that combines the study of electronic engineering and computer science, with an emphasis on internet technologies, wireless communications, sensor devices, and cloud computing.  The Internet of Things (IoT) programme modules are taught in English. The majority of course modules are taught by University College Dublin academic staff who are experts in research areas relevant to this exciting interdisciplinary programme.  The Internet of Things (IoT) programme provides access to state-of-the-art technologies and students will engage in the creative development of the innovative Internet of Things.  The first two years of instruction offer twice as much English language exposure than is currently required by the Chinese educational system.  Students will graduate with two degrees from both Beijing University of Technology and University College Dublin, both highly regarded world-class universities.

Applicants to BJUT will be reviewed on the basis of academic merit and English language proficiency.  One advantage of this program is that during the first two years of instruction, students receive twice as much English language exposure than is currently required by the Chinese educational system.  This prestigious programme that blends engineering and computer science study is highly selective and there is significant competition for programme places. Applicants should obtain the first division line in Gaokao to be considered.

This is a 4-year bachelor degree programme in Engineering. The curriculum includes lectures, laboratory exercises, tutorials/seminars and project work. The programme starts with a strong foundation of mathematics in first year, and continues with a basic theory of electronics and computer technology in second year. In the third and fourth years, core modules in electronics, computers and communication networks will be emphasised.

 Core modules include:

  • Electronic Circuits, Digital Logic
  • Computer Programming, Software Engineering
  • Computer Architecture, Operating System
  • Communication Networks, Computer Networks
  • Digital Signal Processing, Wireless Communications
  • RFID. Sensor Networks, M2M
  • Microcontroller, Embedded Systems
  • Cloud Computing, Information Security 

Indicative core modules include:

  • Compendium of Chinese Modern History
  • Morality, Ethnic Cultivation and Fundamentals of Law
  • Mao Zedong's Thought and Chinese Characteristic Socialism Theory
  • Physical Education
  • Military Theory and Training
  • College English
  • Principles of Marxism
  • Construction of Socialism and Chinese Characteristics

You will be assessed using a wide variety of assessment techniques. Assessment will vary between modules. Many modules may be assessed through a combination of coursework and formal exams. Coursework may include laboratory reports, individual and group assignments, written essays and individual or group presentation.

Students will acquire a broad range of skills creating excellent career prospects in areas as diverse as circuit design, software development, mobile communications, network planning, system integration and related areas. With the rapid development and a wide range of applications of IoT in China, graduates from this degree will find excellent opportunities in various companies such as IBM, Intel and Microsoft, and multinational companies focused on networks such as China Mobile and China Telecom, Many medium and small sized companies also seek skills that students will obtain through this degree. Graduates can move into technology management in the field of IoT, such as public service management for local government.

The international nature of this degree also enhances the opportunities for graduates who may want to pursue further postgraduate programmes. In UCD exciting opportunities for graduate study exist in areas such as electronic or computer engineering.   Research areas leading to a master’s or PhD degree include information studies, computation and communications.
