Introduction to Connected Devices (ECSE377)
This course was developed to address a need in the undergraduate engineering and computer science curriculums to prepare students for building, deploying, and managing IoT products and services. Building IoT products requires connecting different platforms, often with a variety of technologies and programming languages, into a system. Both the variety of platforms and the “systems” nature of IoT make it particularly challenging for undergraduate students.
This offering was developed as a partnership between higher education and industry. Nick Barendt, CWRU alumnus and Executive Director of ISSACS, co-developed the class in 2015 in partnership with a team of expert developers and designers at LeanDog, Inc. a software consultancy. Mr. Nick Barendt presented a paper on the course at the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) Annual Conference in 2018.
