The Telecommunications Technology program is designed to provide the student with the knowledge, theory, and applications of Modern Networking Systems. It is important to have an understanding of the operating environments of embedded networking and communication capabilities. These include Data and Voice Communications between computer networks, protocols, devices, and communication operating systems. This program provides a background in networking fundamentals with an emphasis on the computing environment. As the telecommunications field matures, the basics remain of vital importance to the industry. The program exposes the student to the theory and practice behind these principles. The courses are designed to support the growth in cell and satellite phones, Global Positions Systems, fiber optics, and the general growth in digital communications.

With the onset of Wireless Communication, the need for individuals who understand the basic principles of this complex technology are increasing at a steady rate. Upon successful completion of this course, the student will understand such concepts as computer protocols, modulation techniques, waveform analysis, data compression, transmit/receive subsystems and communication components; and be prepared for a career in the rapidly growing telecommunications industry.
