Diploma in Telecommunications Engineering

Diploma in Telecommunications Engineering

The Telecommunication Diploma Engineering programme is designed to provide students with the necessary skills, which would equip them for employment in network fault diagnosis, equipment repair and installations, service and network planning, within telecommunication companies. As such, subjects offered include transmission theory, telecommunications signaling, communication measurements and techniques, and advanced data communications. In addition, students would be exposed to basic telephony, networks and fundamentals of microprocessor.

The curriculum of the programme contains a sufficient number of electives that students can tailor their studies to their interests or pursue a minor. If the students’ interests lie in the applications of telecommunications equipment, opportunity exists to take courses from areas such as computer engineering technology and information technology. If students wish to pursue the management of telecommunications resources, a minor in business course can provide the necessary background for the challenges they will face as future telecommunications managers.
