Smart watches, smart phones, many home security systems and autonomous vehicles: The Internet allows them to communicate with each other and together they make the Internet of Things (IoT). Starting in the spring of 2018, FIU will be the first university in the nation to offer a bachelor’s degree in managing these growing networks of smart things.
