IoT is at the forefront of the digital transformation era and is a key technology in most of the advancements we are all witnessing day by day. IoT is responsible for almost all interactions, automatic control and action triggering in the most important digital transformation areas of our era, such as: smart cities, smart manufacturing, industry 4.0, smart home, smart agriculture, smart healthcare and so many others.
As the Dean of the School of IoT, I am extremely proud of the entrepreneurial nature and industrial focus of both our education and research programmes. Our undergraduate and graduate programs prepare our students to become long-life learners, active critical thinkers and the innovators that are needed to meet the challenges of this time of critical transition in our society. This entrepreneurial focus associated with a strong research-led teaching approach, prepare our students to become industrial leaders with the moral depth and intellectual capability to serve society and lead the industry into the future.
Located in an industrial and economical hub, the Entrepreneur College in Taicang offers unique opportunities for our students to engage with national and international industrial companies as well as with the business community in general, thus providing the perfect opportunity for our students to put their entrepreneurial education into action. Through the success of our students, the knowledge and research contributions of our academic members of staff continue to drive change and have a positive societal impact in the industrial and business community, the country and across the globe.
I invite all of you who are interested in expanding your knowledge and enriching your careers to come to join us in the exploration and exploitation of this exciting technology of IoT.
