A deep dive introduction to emerging technologies, from researchers at the cutting edge of science & engineering and leading industry figures with experience in digital innovation.

UCL is bringing together entrepreneurs and innovators across industry to explore the applications of novel research through a series of lectures and workshops.

Participants gain an overview of the sector from both a research and enterprise perspective, with an option to develop a student research project to apply an innovative technology within their business.


Internet of Things Intensive Module

This innovative week long taught module provides a mix of lectures and practical exercises, covering the key technologies supporting IoT systems, system design and software development, and deployment in the wider context of the ICT industry.

The content can be tailored to suit your enterprise, and delivered as a bespoke CPD course, or taken as an individual through the Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering.

Please contact Tim Bodley Scott for more information.



Machine Learning Academy and The Internet of Things Academy (IoTA)          


Through the EDRF CASTS programme, we’re able to provide a deep dive introduction to emerging technologies for SMEs hoping to take advantage of rapidly developing research to grow their businesses.

If you have an idea for an IoT application and want to know how to turn it into a business, IoTA will help you refine your product and plan your start up. A broad introduction to the Internet of Things, this course covers the landscape of connected devices, drilling into the key questions you’ll need to think about before launching.

The Machine Learning Academy offers a collaborative learning environment to develop a grounding in machine learning methods and how to work with artificial intelligence in a business context. Aimed at student entrepreneurs, SMEs and corporate innovators, the course provides students with an overview of the different methodologies and their applications from both research and enterprise perspectives. The ML Academy  Participants are encouraged to work on a project (alone, or teaming up with others) as they progress through the diverse programme of talks and workshops.

Sessions are delivered by industry professionals who share the insights you can’t get from a text book, or a blog, and by academics at the cutting edge of computer science research. In addition to learning the fundamental knowledge needed to build a business model around AI, you’ll join a community of people working in one of the most important technology areas for the next decade.

In addition to bringing together pioneering academic researchers and leading business figures, UCL staff provide support in scoping out a project to apply the novel research within the participant’s business, with the opportunity to work with a post-graduate student on implementation.

The course is been held over six weeks at IDEALondon, the Innovation Hub in Shoreditch, during term times. Weekly talks and workshops are held in the evenings, giving flexibility around the working day.
