Sigfox Education

Every entrepreneur, developer or engineer was a student once. We support universities and schools to integrate IoT into their classes, to bring Sigfox on campus, with the aim to train tomorrow’s entrepreneurs, developers, engineers and expert of the IoT sector. The program supports also professional trainings, to work closely with top managers challenged on innovative IoT project in their company. As of today, we are working with 250 academic institutions in 60 countries.

The Sigfox Education Program is focusing on Universities, Schools, professors and students, but we welcome all those willing to learn and share about IoT and Sigfox technology! 

As a feature of our Education Program, we’ve created the Learning Center to give massive access to our knowledge. All this material supports anyone to learn about IoT and of course Sigfox technology and 0G network, from a technical and business point of view. The Learning Center offers dedicated access to high-level content for our community. 

Whether you are a student, a teacher, a developer, a Sigfox ambassador, or an entrepreneur, here you are certain to find content to learn from.

We look forward to furthering innovation with students and creating a more connected world using the Sigfox technology! 

Learning Center

Sigfoxers, Sigfox Ambassadors, University Professors: we are lucky to have people willing to share their content with the wide public and free for all to use. This guarantees a great variety and diversity of high-quality information. 

Sigfox Learning Center, your learning experience in 5 steps:

  • Discover: introduction to IoT, Sigfox Tech, IoT business case 
  • Practice: technical quick start, dev kit activation and tutorial 
  • Learn: prototyping, next step in Sigfox Tech and business application 
  • Develop: technical dive, IoT platform, from PoC to Prod 
  • Expand: Sigfox specification, certification, industrialization 

Each step of the journey is presenting articles, webinars, blog posts and videos. 

Each content is identified as Tech or Business and qualified as Beginners, Intermediate, Advanced or Expert, to help you navigate through the list of content. 

Our Learning Center is free and open to everyone, so don't be afraid and get started here!

Universities Challenge

We are welcoming any university students (under and post grad) in developing projects that will both benefit local needs and drive academic innovation through Sigfox around the world.

As a feature of our Education Program, this challenge offers to practice and develop the knowledge in IoT, LPWAN and Sigfox technology.

Get the chance to pitch your solution in front of industry and technology experts in Sigfox and join us on Hackster.io to make things come alive!

Workshops

The easiest way to get started with Sigfox is to use a devkit and to practice! 

To help you to do so, we provide guidance to drive courses and workshops, through best practices and contents. We also worked together with several board- and chip-makers in order to provide first-timers with accessible hardware.

Would you like to learn more about IoT opportunities and technical matters? Empower your local community with courses, workshops and events!

Once you registered to the program, you will be able to ask for help to set-up a Sigfox traning at your University/School.

Hardware

We can provide developer kits and modules. Each devkit comes with a year of free Sigfox connectivity.

To get free hardware, conditions apply:

  • Your university/school is registered in our Education Program.
  • 20 to 40 students must confirm they are interested in the session.
  • The resulting projects must be posted on Hackster.io afterward.
  • Teacher must send Sigfox the content of the session, so that we can share it with the community.

Please register to the program to be able to request hardware.

Coverage

The Sigfox network already covers more than 60 countries! Click on the map to discover if your university/school is covered.

Would you like to host a base station on campus and get started with Sigfox technology? Send a request, and we will do our best we can to help you, with the support of our local Operator.

If you're looking for a quick solution to speed up development and tests before having full coverage, the Sigfox SDR Dongle is a powerful and configurable radio Receiver and Transmitter that emulates the Sigfox network. It works without any network coverage, and works for all Sigfox Radio Configurations (RC).  All details are here.
