The Internet of Things stands out as the ability to connect objects from our environment in order to quantify them and also act on them.
The fundamental goal of the Global Master in Industrial Internet of Things is to present and use the technologies and tools necessary for the development of IoT solutions applied to the industry. In addition to covering the cybersecurity aspects, the program goes into detail about data collection in the field with PLCs and microcontrollers, processing on the Edge, sending data to the Cloud and representing data in the Cloud.
The program is focused in a completely practical way, following a learning-by-doing model and simulating real-world situations.
In other words, for the coursework, the students can contribute their personal projects or choose one of the projects proposed by the professors. Once the student has chosen the use case that the whole program will work on, all program activities will evolve around this real case study.
Why you should choose this Master's program
360º Transversal Program
The Global Master in Industrial Internet of Things covers the transversal needs for those who want to implement IoT and take their Industrial Business to a new level. The program addresses how the business model can be affected, how to manage the implementation in a project and the new architectures, edge computing, cloud technologies, visualization and analytics involved.
The faculty board is composed of leading professionals with expertise in implementing IIoT in all types of projects of different areas. The experts’ teaching is directed at a variety of markets on a global scale, adding an international approach to the program.
Develop Technical and Management Skills
This master’s degree proposes a well-planned program that takes care not only of technical and business competencies but also deploys the best practices to succeed in IIoT projects, integrating the communication among different stakeholders.
Apply Knowledge On the Go
Each module includes a final assignment where you will be able to apply the knowledge learned to a company or a project of your choice. Participants will be able to use their personal projects or choose one among the projects proposed by the lecturers.
Double Business Application
IIoT solutions have a double application as business models since they can focus on B2B (Business to Business) or B2C (Business to Customer). This differentiation changes the focus of the organization and processes to be carried out during the development of the project. Only a specific master like this one will permit you to learn the difference in approach and management, both at the business level and in the other areas.
The diversity of profiles, industries and countries of the participants guarantees an enriching experience. The different profiles and cultural backgrounds provide added value to the program with a variety of professional experiences in different areas and industries. This enables creating a worldwide network of professionals to jump-start new joint ventures.
Business models and Project Management
The program covers everything related to the different business models around the IIoT, such as planning a project, preparing budgets and creating teams.
New Paradigm of Architectures
Carry out the project execution. In addition, the activities are proposed collaboratively and in groups to promote the most realistic possible scenarios within IIoT projects.
Edge, Connecting Things
Regarding the technical aspects, experiments will be carried out with prototyping elements for data collection in the field, as well as with industrial products such as PLCs for data collection and action on physical systems.
Cloud, Visualization & Analytics
Different types of gateways will be seen for the data processing in the Edge, sending data to different Cloud platforms, and non-Cloud, for the storage and subsequent treatment of the data. In addition to covering all aspects related to cybersecurity of all the mentioned elements, basic techniques of analysis of these data and presentation of results for the user of the solutions are also discussed in detail.
Master’s Final Thesis
The Master’s Final Project will be developed progressively throughout the program, but an important space is reserved at the end of the course for the total integration of the elements worked on, in addition to the deliverables for their evaluation.The project’s tutor will offer mentoring sessions for the participants in order to follow up with the performance of the final thesis.

He sido alumna del Máster BIM Management en Infraestructuras y GIS y estoy más que satisfecha tanto con el nivel del profesorado como del sistema de aprendizaje que aplican. Las prácticas concretamente son el punto fuerte de este máster puesto que funcionan como un verdadero simulacro del trabajo colaborativo real en la metodología BIM.¡100% recomendable!
Definitivamente un centro de educación que esta a la vanguardia en los temas que tratan y enseñan. Sus Master muy bien enfocados hacia las nuevas tecnologías con docentes de un gran nivel y junto al staff de soporte hacen de un buena experiencia de aprendizaje.
