Engage fully in the process of designing an IoT solution, from initial analysis of the creative idea to planning out the product, research and design, and identifying a route to market.

Start Date:

Before you start

Completion of these 5 edX courses: IOT1x IOT2x IOT3x IOT4x IOT5x
Course opens: Jul 9, 2019
Course ends: Oct 13, 2019

What you will learn

  • Evaluate ideas, literature, designs, users, markets and feedback, and incorporate them into your concept design process
  • Produce an imaginative, viable concept design that is a solution to a problem, is ready to prototype and test, and has an identified route to market.


This capstone course will help you to bring together everything you’ve learned in the IoT MicroMasters program.

You will fully engage in the process of designing your own IoT solution. Starting with a systematic analysis of your creative idea, you will move through the research and design phases, conduct product planning, and identify a route to market for your IoT solution.

You’ll work through stages and strategies involved in implementing or bringing a new (IoT) product to market, and learn practical concepts and techniques suited to new product planning, development, implementation and control.

Learners must have successfully completed IOT1x, IOT2x, IOT3x, IOT4x, and IOT5x to enroll in this capstone course.
