The Internet of Things (IoT)
technology – connecting every possible device, object or thing to the Internet – promises to be one of the biggest economic revolutions since the Industrial Revolution, enabling a step-change in productivity, driving economic growth and enriching our lives. It could generate $4 trillion to $11 trillion in value globally in 2025 (source: McKinsey, 2015).
The IoT allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities to monitor and manage objects in the physical world electronically. IoT products refer to all devices using Wi-Fi for remote monitoring: smart homes, connected cars, wearables, healthcare, smart cities, smart enterprises, etc. Many start-ups and established businesses - Valeo, Schneider Electric, Google, Apple, General Electric, Sigfox, Parrot, etc. - , have already invested in R&D expenditures and the development of new IoT products.
The Internet of Things

The option will enable students to:
- access a new teaching curriculum corresponding to recent changes;
- take advantage of privileged relations with Chair partner companies: exchanges during classes, possible internships,
supervision of theses, etc.
Students must validate the elective course "Information mastering the key element of digital economy" (IA0E).
