 The Internet of Things (IoT) industry is a rapidly growing industry with a projected market value of 6 trillion US dollars worldwide, powered by 60 billion   connected devices by 2025(Business Insider, 2018).  Embedded Systems and the IoT have transformed countless facets of our economy,  such as   transportation, agriculture, healthcare, sustainable energy, smart technology, and weather prediction.

 The Washington, D.C., Maryland, and Virginia (DMV) area is the central hub of industries focused on this emerging technology. The growing need for engineers specialized in emerging technology hardware and software design, along with the CPSE program centered at the industry hub, creates unparalleled career and internship opportunities for students pursuing the Cyber-Physical Systems Engineering (CPSE) program.
