Lviv IT Cluster Launches IoT Lab at Lviv Polytechnic

27 Feb, 2018 1

A new modern IoT Lab will be launched at Lviv Polytechnic National University. The lab will work within the IoT program, which was launched in 2016 by Lviv IT Cluster together with local IT companies. The official opening will take place on Monday, 5th of March.

IoT lab will become a unique platform for students to build smart devices or experiment with hardware part of their projects. There will be 14 working places in the lab. A few practical courses will take place inside the lab, including courses in Microcontrollers, Sensors and Actuators, Electronics and Digital Circuit Engineering.

The opening of the first IoT lab is the next step in one of the biggest Cluster’s educational projects. The whole process took a long time – from the idea, looking for the lab’s room and its reconstruction, finding sponsors to help with the equipment and actually buying this equipment. We had lots of meetings with IT companies’ top management and signed many documents. This lab has been a big challenge for our education team, but the result is worth it. Students will have a chance to use their theoretical knowledge in practice during classes held in the lab as well as working on their own projects. And this is the opportunity, students from any faculty need” – says Zenoviy Veres, Education Director at Lviv IT Cluster, Solution Architect, and teacher at Lviv Polytechnic.

Lviv IT Cluster is also planning to launch the second IoT lab for production of smart devices, starting from designing and creating real prototypes with details printed on a 3D printer, etc.

The students of one of our first degree programs will get an opportunity not just to learn the newest courses and technologies, but also to learn the fundamentals of IoT in practice. This modern lab is one of the Cluster’s biggest achievements since there are no similar labs at state universities. Quality changes in education and investments in the future generations are equally important for us and local IT companies, therefore I am confident we won’t stop on only one lab” – says Stepan Veselovskyi, CEO, Lviv IT Cluster.

IoT lab was created thanks to 16 member-companies of Lviv IT Cluster which financially supported the project. Among them: PLVision, SoftServe, Ciklum, Cypress, N-iX, Eleks, Sombra, KindGeek, Vakoms, V.I.Tech, Lohika, GlobalLogic, Intellias, Conscensia, Perfectial, Vector Software.

IoT lab is located in building #5 of Lviv Polytechnic, room 606a (S. Bandery St., 28a). The official opening will take place on Monday, 5th of March at 2 pm.
