At present, there are tremendous growth and opportunities in the field of the “Internet of Things” (IoT). Further, various application systems, such as smart city, smart grid, smart healthcare system, smart transportation, require the adaptation of IoT within it to enhance the smartness of such systems. In addition, several industrial organizations are focusing on the generation of revenues out of these IoT-based services. Hence, in this perspective, there is an extensive demand for human knowledge power on IoT technologies. There exists an increase in demand for professionals in IoT technology. Need for preparing engineering graduates to face this demand of IoT technology is the key focuses of educational institutions. In the revised course curriculums, IoT specialized courses remain the main focuses to be framed and offered to students. This chapter discusses one such course named IoT workshop, which was offered to the sixth semester students of undergraduate engineering. This chapter presents the requirements of offering IoT course, Node-RED as programming environment, course contents delivered, learning outcomes, course assessments, projects, and results achieved through this course by students.
