Wireless Sensor Networks Online Course & Certificate

Course Description

Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) started as a wild academic idea that turned into a commercially vibrant technology. From solely sensing the environment, wireless sensor networks are now deployed in production in energy, medicine, transportation, industrial automation, etc. Wireless Sensor Networks is a course that covers the state-of-the art in the technology as well as the industry. It covers the fundamentals of wireless sensor design and radio frequency (RF) technology, the communication protocols used, and the application requirements of this technology.


Students will be assigned 5 homework assignments, and 1 final exam for each course.

Course Outcomes:
