- IoT will affect most industries and business sectors - around 30% of tasks and up to 60% of occupations could be automated, and almost every occupation has the potential for partial automation (Source: McKinsey Global Institute).
- IoT is leading to the creation of new jobs, where people who understand and can leverage the IoT to create solutions will be greatly in demand.
- To remain competitive and successful in the digital economy, professionals should have an understanding of what the IoT is and how it can be used to create business solutions.
- This MicroMasters will also help learners to develop their analytical, creative, problem-solving and critical thinking skills, which are highly valued by employers across all fields.
"Every industry will be impacted by the Internet of Things. Cisco predicts there will be 500 billion IoT connections over the next 10 years. It is essential for businesses to have an understanding of what the IoT will enable – greater connectivity, huge collection of data, new insights and the security implications. Curtin University’s MicroMasters in the Internet of Things is an exciting new program that will help anyone understand how to manage IoT projects, become industry ready, and shape a career for longevity in the face of the changes created by the IoT."— Ken Boal , Vice President of Cisco Systems, Australia and New Zealand
