I have written an article regarding “Top Jobs in IOT Value Chain” in March 2017 and predicted the IoT developers will on demand within 2-3 years time frame. However, in order develop this new skills, we believed that it should start with proper training in the Universities. Thus, within less than 3 months we have made a partnership with 15 Universities (including 1 from Singapore) (Note: All the names will be disclosed later) whereby FAVORIOT will be providing the IoT platform for the following purpose:
- Hands-on Lab for students
- Final Year Projects
- R&D projects for the students and lecturers
- Beta trial – within and outside the University
We hoped this initiative will spur the interests in IoT and also groom the next Generation-IoT.
Are you ready to become Generation-IoT?
