IoT Centre of Excellence – India is one of the world’s top five economies, and its fastest-growing major economy is based on a strong telecommunications infrastructure. The industry has greatly contributed to this exceptional growth and is leading the country’s digital transformation, keeping India at the forefront of various technological advancements including as 5G, IoT, AI/ML, and so on.
To assist fulfill its future economic ambitions, India needs a trained workforce to spearhead this shift.

It is critical that the children develop the necessary abilities in order to capitalize on this opportunity. As India leads the digitalisation trend with emerging new technologies such as 5G, IoT, AI, and so on, we have taken an essential step in developing the necessary skill sets to give Indian youngsters an advantage. We are thrilled to be working with TSSC.
The IoT Centre of Excellence hopes to serve 300 students this year through a combination of online and offline training programs. The projects available at the Centre include LED Blinking using GPIO, Simple LED Programming using Arduino Module, Seven-Segment Display Implementation, Boom Barrier Unit for security and traffic management, and data analysis from various sensors.
