This program emphasises the hardware issues related to telecommunications, including digital systems, antenna design, communication hardware, data transfer and management and signal processing. Graduates will work in a variety of situations, such as communications in offices, communications between machines, and intercontinental communication issues. There is a high demand for telecommunications engineers as providers struggle to meet the rapid increase demand for both personal and business use of different modes of communications, including the mobile telephone and Internet.
