The Internet of Things is fast turning into the biggest employment generation segment. By 2025, there will be a demand for nearly 5 million skilled employees in the IoT segment in India alone. This demand will be bolstered by countries that have launched IoT projects but do not have the academic infrastructure to generate trained IoT-ready workforce.
The IoT security segment within the larger IoT umbrella is expected to be the single largest employment generator accounting for as much as 25 percent of all IoT jobs created. If your campus offers an IoT curriculum, you are half way there as far as preparing IoT-ready students is concerned. If you have a IoT and Security lab, your campus will stand out and gain a clear competitive advantage.
