Internet Of Things PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

We have 71 Internet Of Things PhD Projects, Programmes & Scholarships

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a vast network of physical objects that exchange data with over devices over the internet. These include everything from household items like fitness trackers and thermostats to industrial technologies such as power grids and digital supply chains.

PhD candidates in the IoT might study how to expand of improve the Internet of Things or explore its applications and effects.

What’s it like to study a PhD in the Internet of Things?

As a PhD candidate studying the IoT, you’ll work with the guidance of an expert supervisor to complete a thesis will make an original contribution to the field. Your research will likely be largely lab-based, though certain projects may involve fieldwork.

Possible research areas include:

  • Smart cities
  • Privacy preservation and personal data
  • Assisted living technologies
  • Cyber security
  • Health monitoring and diagnostics
  • Artificial intelligence and robotics

Besides independent research, you may have the opportunity to connect with the wider academic community through attending conferences, publishing papers and teaching. You may also be provided with training in core research skills.

Entry requirements for a PhD in the Internet of Things

The minimum entry requirement for a PhD in the IoT is usually a 2:1 undergraduate degree in Computer Science, Software Engineering or other related subject, though a Masters may sometimes be required.

PhD in the Internet of Things funding options

The main body funding PhDs in the IoT in the UK is the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). Projects will almost always have funding attached, meaning that successful applicants will automatically be awarded coverage of tuition fees, a living cost stipend, and often an extra research grant.

It may be possible to self-fund a PhD in the IoT, but this is uncommon. Students who self-fund an Engineering or Computer Science PhD generally do so through combining the UK’s doctoral loan with additional sources of funding such as support from their university or from a charity or trust.

PhD in the Internet of Things careers

As the IoT expands, career opportunities in the domain continue to grow. Experts are needed in many areas including data analysis, security, user interface, networking structure and artificial intelligence. You may choose to apply your skills in the many industries that are now part of the IoT, or to advance your academic career by researching new ways to improve and maintain the IoT.
