The field of Engineering is that which needs a high level of analytical thinking, intuitive knowledge, and technical know-how. The area of communication engineering deals with different components including, wireless mobile services, radio, broadband, web and satellites. There is a rapid decline in the quality of students produced by engineering faculties as a result of sufficient and quality methods and frameworks of student assessment. The production of high-potential engineers is limited by the utilization of old and traditional education methodology and frameworks. The student presentation estimation system in engineering institution is a motionless manual. Usually, the assessment of student’s performance using the traditional system is limited to the use of students’ performance scores, while failing to evaluate their performance based on activities or practical applications. In addition, such systems do not take cognizance of individual knowledge of students that connects to different activities within the learning environment. Recently, engineering institutions have started paying attention to evaluation solutions that are based on wireless networks and Internet of Things (IoT). Therefore, in this study, an automated system has been proposed for the assessment of engineering students. The proposed system is designed based on IoT and wireless communication networks with the aim of improving the process of virtual education. The data used in this study has been collected through the use of different IoT sensors within the premises of the college, and pre-processed using normalization. After the data was pre-processed, it was stored in cloud. In order to enable the classification of student’s activity, an Adaptive Layered Bayesian Belief Network (AL-BBN) classifier is proposed in this work. The student’s scores have been calculated using fuzzy logic, while Multi-Gradient Boosting Decision Tree (MGBDT) was proposed for decision making. The use of python simulation tool is employed in the implementation of the proposed system, and the evaluation of the performance benchmarks was done as well. Based on the findings of the study, the proposed conceptual model outperformed the existing ones in terms of improving the process of online learning.
