The Telecommunications Engineering Program is interdisciplinary, requiring a blend of knowledge from electrical engineering, computer science and economics/policy. The telecommunications engineering program focuses on providing excellent education in modern communications networks and systems, preparing students for outstanding careers in telecommunications, data communications, network architecture, and wireless and optical networking. Training is provided for both academically oriented students and students with professional goals in many business, industrial or governmental occupations requiring advanced knowledge of telecommunications, network theory and technology. A comprehensive program of evening courses is offered which enables part-time students to obtain their master’s or Ph.D. degree or to select individual courses of interest.
The M.S. degree program has been carefully designed for students to gain breadth of knowledge, and it is flexible enough for students to specialize in the area of their choice. Students who have earned a B.S. degree may apply to the M.S. degree program. The Ph.D. program is available for highly qualified students who are interested in pursuing a Ph.D. immediately after completing a B.S. degree. Students who have earned an M.S. degree may apply to the Ph.D. program.
Courses and research are offered in a variety of sub fields of telecommunication engineering, including, fault-tolerant computing, parallel processing, digital signal processing, digital communications, modulation and coding, electromagnetic-wave propagation, fiber and integrated optics, lasers, wireless communications, mobile IP, wireless multimedia, DWDM networks, QoS assurance protocols, network design and optimization, telecommunications software, performance of systems, ad-hoc and PCS wireless networks, network security and high speed protocols.
The Jonsson school carries out a broad range of study and research in telecommunications, addressing all phases of this field. The school has active programs in:
