Engineers and/or executives

  • with a technical degree in the areas of electrical engineering, manufacturing, mechanical engineering.

5G has the potential of revolutionizing key industries such as health care, transport, infrastructure, media and production. This brings with it important tasks and great challenges: extremely low latency periods of 1 millisecond, 100 times higher data rates than today's networks, 100 billion end devices across the world as well as low power usage. The Internet of Things and intelligent networks are key elements of 5G. The methods and approaches of this technology open many new business models for KMUs.

The course consists of six subject blocks (lectures with exercises) and a practical training as part of an innovation workshop. In this course, the participants independently develop an IoT system application based on a graphical user interface.
