15 Universities Partner With FAVORIOT to Create Ecosystem of IoT Developers


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:

  1. Hands-on Lab for students
  2. Final Year Projects
  3. R&D projects for the students and lecturers
  4. 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?
