About

Internet of Things (IoT) is a theme that is increasingly present in our lives. Internet does no longer connect groups, but also people and objects. In the next decades, billions of intelligent devices are expected to be interconnected, interpreting information from their surroundings and interacting with the world. These technologies will allow the optimization of various aspects of daily life in areas such as health, transportation, agriculture and waste management.

Thinking about that, Samsung offers, in partnership with the Laboratório de Sistemas Integráveis (LSI-TEC), the 'Code IoT' platform, with programming, basic electronics, robotics and Android apps development courses. This initiative is part of the Tech Institute, Samsung’s program that offers opportunities for young people to obtain technical training through free courses and scholarship. The partnership with LSI-TEC was announced in 2016 and Code IoT is one of the great results of this alliance.

Program Details

Courses last 6 weeks each and participants that conclude all proposed tasks receive a certificate for each course.

Courses are free and are intended for basic education students and teachers. However, anyone interested in the subject can enroll.

Registered students have access to course content after its beginning.
