Last few decades had seen extensive growth in the electronic systems to make the life of humans smoother and easier with time. With enormous features available in various systems, a new era of engineering, Internet of Things (IoT), has gained interest. IoT is a network of connected things and people, which collects and communicates data from environment around them. To be able to do so, Sensors are the key components to communicate with surroundings. Applications of Sensors and Internet of Things (sIoT) include smart agriculture, transportation, environment monitoring, healthcare, and smart wearable. The M.Tech. Program in sIoT is especially designed for young innovators to provide them a breadth as well as depth for designing systems for the current era of sIoT. M.Tech.+Ph.D. Dual Degree program will have same course work as M.Tech. sIoT for first two years. However, Dual Degree program is specially designed to encourage talented and motivated B.Tech./M.Sc. students to undertake direct Ph.D. study in the area of sIoT. The program will offer deeper theoretical learning through various verticals by theory and laboratory courses. Hands on experiments and projects will be offered to enhance the learning. For Dual Degree Ph.D., ~2 additional years will be dedicated towards research contributions.

Objective of the Program
To produce skilled graduates with deeper understanding of sIoT systems, along with sensor design, fabrication, calibration, characterization, interfacing, and applications to IoT. The graduates will eventually be ready to contribute to variety of domains including smart agriculture, transportation, environment monitoring, healthcare, smart wearable, and industrial IoT.
