Our Projects

Birmingham City University prides itself on its strong industrial links, and this is proven both through the industrial placements that students undertake, and the accredited courses that the university runs. Our IoT Initiative hopes to take this further and create a community of academics, technologists, and customers who can work collaboratively to solve real-world problems using the Internet of Things.
