Internet of Things (IoT) forum was established in 2016 in order to enhance the engineering graduates capable of accepting challenges in the new Internet of Things environment. It was formally inaugurated by Dr. B.S. Karkare, Director VIIT, Dr. S.R. Sakhare, Head Computer Engineering Department, VIIT on 21st July, 2016.
The idea behind the creation of IoT Forum was to unite students from various departments and work together in achieving excellence in this very new, exciting and challenging multi-disciplinary field called “Internet of Things”. It also aims at aspiring students to work on the latest Technology that is ruling and will continue to rule the Industry in the coming years.
The Activities planned to be conducted under VIIT IoT FORUM are:
The IoT Forum firmly believes not only in providing the technical knowledge but also the overall development of an individual. It provides individual with opportunities like delivering a lecture, conducting a workshop, present their innovative ideas in front of a large crowd etc. which helps them in becoming stage-confident. It also encourages the individual to discover the leader in them by providing them various posts at the TE and BE level. It also provides them opportunities to organize events which in turn help them to develop their managerial skills.
