About our Dual Master Degree Program

Exponential growth in connected devices is expected over the next decade, resulting in tremendous social and economic value, as the Internet of Things, Ubiquitous Computing, Wearable Computing, and Smart Devices become dramatically more cost effective, simpler to develop, and increasingly mainstream. Connected devices are poised to advance such diverse fields as health and natural resource management. To invent new applications and develop the expanding connected device market requires leaders with an array of technology, prototyping, design and entrepreneurial skills. We address global challenges by interdisciplinary project oriented education. We train the students how to integrate resources and leverage the innovation ecosystem to change the world. Connected devices is the first dual master degree program offered by GIX. Starting from the fall 2017, prospective students with innovation consciousness, vision and sense of responsibility and mission will start their study in Bellevue.
