Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1 analyse opportunities and requirements for developing IoT solutions
2 identify and evaluate recent trends and advances in IoT technologies
3 develop IoT applications and the supporting framework of connected things
4 determine and critically assess performance issues, security, privacy and ethical concerns of the proposed IoT application
5 propose solutions to intelligent IoT features which can enhance user experience and promote better use of the technologies
