Telecommunications Engineering Major

Overview

In the Telecommunications Engineering major you will learn about the design, planning, commissioning and monitoring of complex telecommunications networks and broadcasting equipment.

The discipline of telecommunications engineering is concerned with all aspects of theory and application for a broad range of systems such as telephone and data networks, radio and television broadcasting, satellite and deep space applications. It is also connected to digital communications, microwaves and antennas, optical communications, the design and manufacture of lasers and optical fibres, signal and information processing and satellite mobile communications.

Today’s telecommunications engineer can expect to deal with a wide range of exciting modern technologies, including mobile and wireless communications, fixed and mobile internet, mobile social networking and data transmissions.

This major best aligns with the Electrical stream.
