BUS 145 — Product Management for the Internet of Things: A Hands-On Course
In this course, you will learn how to successfully create and manage products for IoT from a business and technology perspective. First, we will examine the general principles of how an IoT solution works, from the devices that produce data, to the embedded software that sends data to the cloud, to the applications users interact with. You will learn a step-by-step strategic framework for making IoT product decisions related to business strategy, user experience, technology, data, security, and industry regulation. Throughout the course, you will work in teams to gain hands-on experience using this framework as we apply it to real-world IoT situations. Whether you have a business, technology, or design background, this course will provide a well-rounded overview of what it takes to build products in the era of IoT.
No specific IoT experience or knowledge is required, but experience working with technology products will be helpful.
Please note: This 8-week course is limited to 80 students. There will be some hands-on group projects in which students will work in teams. The instructor is also offering a one-day, lecture-only "bootcamp" version of this course (WSP 138: "Product Management for the Internet of Things: An Intensive Bootcamp"), which has unlimited enrollment and does not include group work. Prospective students should review both courses and schedules to determine which one best suits their needs.
