KIC IT department conducted a workshop that introduced the students to Internet of Things.
The workshop was led by Dr. Rasha Hasan, Assistant professor, IT Department, and Mr. Samer Rihawi, KIC IT Lecturer, IT Department. In the last few years, the Internet of Things has won considerable attention by both the research community and the industrial community, as a technology that allows billions of physical devices to be connected to the Internet. Every object, as small as a pin, and as big as a plane, can be connected to one network, accessed from everywhere, equipped with sensors, and monitored remotely. This technology has enhanced many aspects in several fields of life, for example, health, education, services, and industry.
Students learned Internet of Things (IoT) concept and terminology, IoT evolution from the Internet, Embedded Web Server, Cloud Computing, real-life applications such as education, smart home, vehicles, health (highlighting IoT for Covid-19 cases), possible opportunities in the market, challenges like security and privacy violation, ethical borders, and applications using Raspberry PI & Arduino.
Thirteen students attended the workshop and reported high levels of satisfaction in terms of learned concepts, workshop structure, and in-class engagement.
