Master description

The internet of things, which allows continuous connection between devices in an energy-efficient manner, is the central element of the course, in that it represents the greatest technological revolution since the smartphone boom.
The application of new ICT from the rapid diffusion of devices wearables for accessing information for monitoring people's health and the integrated management of that information by health service users and professionals has generated a major demand for professionals with specialist knowledge, capable of applying ICT for developing innovative solutions in the field of digitisation of health management. It is anticipated that, thanks to the development of IoT technology linked to wearable and mobile devices and data servers, this demand will continue to grow over a relatively long period of time.
Through the participation of different department and centres, the UAB has the necessary knowledge and experience to offer a multidisciplinary training and, therefore, considers the programming of a Master's degree in The Internet of Things for Digital Health to be a top priority. This is a completely innovative course in terms of content, the time at which it is being offered and its transferable nature in ICT engineering. The characteristics offered by the UAB campus make it unique in offering these studies at the School of Engineering.
