Why choose telecommunications engineering?
Telecommunications is on the frontier of information and communication technology. People from all over the world rely on telecommunications systems such as the internet, mobile telephones, broadband, wireless networks, broadcasting and satellite. Telecommunications engineers use new and existing technologies to design, implement and manage systems for processing and transmitting information. Applying their knowledge of electronics, computers, signal processing and networking techniques, they create applications from mobile phone systems to high-tech internet based entertainment systems.
