Edge Computing Devices are becoming increasingly important in the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem as they serve to bridge local IoT networks to Cloud resources while improving overall system performance by optimizing bandwidth usage, reducing decision latency, and minimizing costs. Due to these enhanced capabilities, IoT Edge Devices require more sophisticated designs than typical IoT Sensor Nodes that in turn require more sophisticated Design Engineers to build them. To prepare our students for these new challenges, we developed a hands-on laboratory course focused on the development tools, system components, and design paradigms used when building IoT Edge Devices. In this paper we describe the development of the course, our educational objectives, course syllabus, project assignments, results and suggestions for future course improvements.
