About this course

Skip About this course

This course was created to help learners understand how to design the architecture of IoT systems.

IoT (Internet of Things) systems are inherently distributed, heterogeneous, and complicated, hence designing architecture plays an important role in determining its functionality and quality in the early phase of development. However, designing architecture is not easy, because architects must address a number of system functionalities and quality requirements at the same time.

This course will give you an understanding of the concept of architecture and it will give you an approach to systematically design and evaluate IoT system architecture.

*This course was reorganized based on Smart Systems and Services innovative professional Education (SmartSE) program, which is a series of the education program Waseda University provides in Japanese. For more information, please visit:

Who can take this course?

Unfortunately, learners residing in one or more of the following countries or regions will not be able to register for this course: Iran, Cuba and the Crimea region of Ukraine. While edX has sought licenses from the U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) to offer our courses to learners in these countries and regions, the licenses we have received are not broad enough to allow us to offer this course in all locations. edX truly regrets that U.S. sanctions prevent us from offering all of our courses to everyone, no matter where they live.
