Program description

IoT Winter School

The topic of this course is building a system for remote monitoring and recording of basic patient’s health indicators. Monitored data includes body temperature, heart rate and location, but can be extended with additional sensors such as blood oxygen, detection of other patients nearby using BLE, etc.

Students will learn the basics of embedded technologies – using and programming micro controllers, interfacing and controlling peripheral devices such as digital and analog inputs, sensors and actuators. Relevant communication protocols and standards used in IoT solutions will be covered. You will also learn about the concept of edge devices for data aggregation and local processing and the concept of cloud services for data acquisition, visualization and machine learning. You will then implement a fully functional system using those elements.

Admission requirements

This program is designed for highly enthusiastic and motivated students interested in the field of technology, applied science, social sciences and humanities, as well as arts students who aspire to personal growth and an effective start of their career.

The requirement for participation in the program is knowledge of the basics of programming in any programming language. The program is primarily intended for students enrolled in graduate studies at higher education institutions in the Republic of Croatia.

The Winter School Program is designed for students with at least a pre-intermediate level (B2) of English and it is not suitable for beginners or students with the elementary level of English (A1, A2).
