Honeywell today announced that it is joining Georgia Tech’s Center for the Development and Application of Internet of Things Technologies (CDAIT), reinforcing its commitment to grow its Atlanta presence. This follows Honeywell’s announcement late last year that it would create more than 730 software engineering jobs at its new U.S. Software Center and establish a global headquarters for its $10.7 billion Home and Building Technology business in Midtown Atlanta.
As a global Fortune 100 technology leader in the industrial, commercial and consumer space, Honeywell will bring software engineering expertise to CDAIT along with broader experience and exposure to the emerging and rapidly growing Internet of Things (IoT) marketplace.
By joining CDAIT, Honeywell is building on its existing collaboration with Georgia Tech and the rich resource that its faculty, students and research facilities represent. Honeywell is working to aggressively recruit top software engineering talent to its new Atlanta-based U.S. Software Center. These engineers will specialize in developing software solutions that support Honeywell’s offerings, which address the emergence of IoT, including mobile, cloud computing and data analytics, as well as marketing and user experience. Honeywell engineers will work on critical software and digital products as part of the company’s connected technologies focus in homes, buildings, industrial plants, workers, automobiles and aircraft.
At CDAIT, Honeywell looks to enhance its understanding of the many dimensions and challenges of the IoT space through collaborative research and activities with its fellow board members and Georgia Tech faculty and students.
