Dian Schaffhauser: Researchers Say It's Time to Build an IoT Engineering Discipline

Three researchers argue in a recent article in the IEEE magazine that it's time to create an engineering discipline in more colleges and universities as well as vocational schools focused on the Internet of Things (IoT) and cyber-physical systems (CPS). According to engineering faculty members Joanna DeFranco and Mohamad Kassab from Penn State University and Jeffrey Voas, a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) computer scientist and IEEE fellow, new engineering disciplines tend to "follow the newest technologies," and these two fit that bill.
