About Beyond IoT: Sensory Intelligence & Smart Technology

The Internet of Things (IoT) is transforming the way we live and work on an unprecedented scale. Advances in technology make it essential for organizations to ensure they have employees who have a sound knowledge of concepts such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning and blockchain.

The driving force behind this program is the recognition that advances in the sciences and technologies of sensors, computation, and communications enable unprecedented opportunities to realize designs for, and scale manufacturing of genius systems and which provide previously unimaginable insight into, and control over, the condition of our world.

This program will use case studies to demonstrate the fundamental concepts and showcase cutting edge research which enable new generations of sensors. Throughout the program you will study the fundamental sensing, computing, and communication software technologies at the core of the recent flurry of activity on IoT+.

The technology for, and uses of automated sensing, thinking and deciding are deeper and richer than IoT, and in this program we want you to grasp the concept of the technology beyond IoT (IoT+). For this reason, we will learn about more than just IoT and simple Machine Learning.

Throughout this program you will study the fundamental sensing, computing, and communication software technologies at the core of the recent flurry of activity on IoT+.

This program is aimed at:

  • Engineers and engineering managers.
  • Design and manufacturing engineers seeking to learn about data and modelling in a manufacturing environment.
  • Data scientists looking to apply their craft to the growing field of smart manufacturing.
  • Consultants who want to add value around the latest technology transformations in manufacturing.

Functional and cross-functional teams are encouraged to attend together to accelerate the smart manufacturing adoption process.


Throughout the program, you will be guided to understand all the program content so that you are able to complete the required activities.

However, to complete the various activities, you will also need to:

  • Have previous knowledge of programming software (preferably MATLAB and/or Python).
  • Have access to software development environments, such as MATLAB and/or Python.
  • Advanced level of physics and mathematics.

To make the most of this program, participants must have enough time to deepen their knowledge and to learn techniques and theories on which the exercises are based.

Fire Hydrant Award | MIT Professional Education

MIT Professional Education
Fire Hydrant Award

Jerome Wiesner, president of MIT (1971-1980), described the experience of studying at MIT as “drinking from a fire hydrant.” Living and learning at MIT requires endurance, consistency, and a great deal of determination.

Our professional programs reflect and instill these essential capabilities. The “Fire Hydrant Award” was born as a way to acknowledge those students who demonstrate a constant thirst for learning and the ability to put knowledge into practice. This award is also given to participants who embody MIT’s core values: excellence, meritocracy, courage, humility, curiosity, and a passion for problem-solving and improving society.
