The Deep Dive Coding programme at Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) in the US is launching a 10-week Internet of Things Bootcamp.

Beginning on 24 February 2020, the college is inviting interested students to enroll for the programme, which will offer tech and entrepreneur-minded youngsters the tools to benefit from the proliferation of smart devices and wearables which constitute the internet of things (IoT).

The initiative will teach students the fundamentals of creating and coding smart connected devices built around low power computer chips. Starting with learning the components needed to build a smart lighting controller, working on devices for smart cities, students will be exposed to the fundamentals of circuit design, coding, and integration that will accelerate them towards careers in industries that build and/or use IoT devices – such as health and wellness.

It is estimated that there will be 1 trillion connected devices by 2035 – equating to more than 100 smart devices for every person on earth.

"Today, we see the proliferation of the Internet of Things (smart, connected devices) into many facets of society," a spokesperson for the CNM said.

"We are entering the age of advanced manufacturing, what is being referred to as Industry 4.0, where predictive analytics, generative design, advanced materials, ubiquitous sensors, and automation/robotics is revolutionising industries.

"Our daily routines outside the home will be revolutionised as we create the connected cities of the future.

"From wearables to autonomous automobiles, technology is impacting every aspect of our lives.

"Behind all of this is the Internet of Things, low cost yet powerful compute capability, wirelessly connected to each other and the Cloud, and able to sense/influence the environments where we work and live."
