I am very new to this and need some help to be pointed in the right direction and some terminology to do further research with.

I am an engineering student and have recently started work on project outside of university. I have a small amount of web knowledge but need to learn a lot more for this project.

The project requires a user to log in to an external devices, measurements to be collected from the device, sent to a server for storage (I think?) then processed and viewed on a computer at a different location. I am trying to research more about this but stuck on what terminology to search for.

Any help or suggestions on things to look for would be appreciated

Thanks in advance.
