MAJ03435 Telecommunications Engineering

Telecommunications is an integral part of modern society. This major allows recent graduates and people already in the workforce to deepen and/or broaden skills and knowledge in various areas with telecommunication engineering. In particular, there is a strong emphasis on wireless forms of communication engineering, including satellite and cellular mobiles. Candidates must have completed previous undergraduate studies in telecommunications to gain entry to this major, as it requires a solid understanding of signal theory, signals and systems, modulation and coding, as well as propagation. For candidates who want to move into the telecommunications area and do not meet the above criteria, there is another major called Telecommunication Networks that may be suitable for your needs.

Awarding of this major on an academic transcript also requires the completion of a graduate project in this broad discipline area.
