Staff and students of Salalah College of Technology brought a remarkable honour to the College for bagging major awards in the recently concluded IoT Olympics held at the Higher College of Technology last May 10th, 2018.
The first-ever Internet of Things (IoT) Olympics is a student’s project-based competition which was open to all prestigious institutions across the Sultanate of Oman to join and participate. A total of twenty six (26) teams participated from the different Colleges and Universities across the country with some of the most reputable private IT organizations as judges.
Higher College of Technology has actively launched this national competition as Internet of Things (IoT) is such a scorching topic today that allows virtually endless opportunities and connections to take place not only in a private sector but also in various institutions. It also opens a door to a lot of prospects and challenges specifically to the students that makes them figure out the gigantic amounts of data to be generated in the devices that they are going to produce.
