Learning outcomes

After the course, the student will be able to

  1. define systems, information and communication
  2. differentiate the physical and symbolic realities
  3. work with the concept of structure of awareness
  4. characterise the internet of things (IoT) and cyber-physical systems
  5. model and analyse systems as constituted by physical, information and decision-making layers
  6. use basic Python libraries in Jupyter notebooks to analyse IoT-based systems.

These skills are needed to built IoT systems for practical industrial applications.
