Mas­ter in telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions

The Sun (Malaysia) - - EDUCATION FOCUS - BY YEO CHIA HUI

IN this day and age, telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion is as im­por­tant as ever. As it pen­e­trates every as­pect of our life, it has also led to the de­vel­op­ment of a com­plex global com­mu­ni­ca­tion in­fra­struc­ture that uses the lat­est wire­less and wired tech­nolo­gies for the com­mu­ni­ca­tion of in­for­ma­tion.

There­fore, to keep up with the in­creased de­mands placed on this in­fra­struc­ture, it re­quires en­gi­neers who are equipped with the lat­est knowl­edge and skills. With this in mind, Lin­coln Univer­sity Col­lege has de­vised its Mas­ter of Sci­ence in Telecom­mu­ni­ca­tion En­gi­neer­ing to meet the grow­ing de­mand for skilled mas­ter grad­u­ates.

Its pro­gramme fo­cuses on de­vel­op­ment, de­sign and main­te­nance of voice and data com­mu­ni­ca­tions sys­tems – sig­nal and im­age pro­cess­ing, an­tenna prop­a­ga­tion, op­ti­cal fi­bre, satel­lite, wired, un­wired, and the en­cod­ing, en­cryp­tion and com­pres­sion of data.

More­over, it en­ables grad­u­ates to de­velop the com­pet­i­tive tech­no­log­i­cal skills needed in the de­sign and en­gi­neer­ing of mod­ern telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions sys­tems and net­works. Stu­dents will gain an un­der­stand­ing of the ad­vance­ment in telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions en­gi­neer­ing, in­clud­ing the plan­ning and man­age­ment of telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions net­works, and the math­e­mat­i­cal and com­pu­ta­tional skills nec­es­sary to solve tech­ni­cal and the­o­ret­i­cal prob­lems.

Among the high­lights of the course is that stu­dents are able to com­plete the mas­ter’s de­gree in one year and six months if it is pur­sued on a full-time ba­sis. There are also op­por­tu­ni­ties to con­tinue your stud­ies fur­ther and ap­ply for ad­mis­sion into the three-year PhD pro­gramme.

Stu­dents can ad­just the course to suit their de­sired ca­reer path too be­cause there are a num­ber of op­tional mo­d­ules that al­low them to fo­cus on their ca­reer as­pi­ra­tions. Be­sides that, Lin­coln Univer­sity Col­lege is fur­nished with ex­cel­lent lab­o­ra­tory fa­cil­i­ties in the ar­eas of fi­bre op­tic com­mu­ni­ca­tion, satel­lite com­mu­ni­ca­tion, an­ten­nas and wave prop­a­ga­tion, data com­mu­ni­ca­tion and net­work­ing, dig­i­tal sig­nal pro­cess­ing and im­age pro­cess­ing. Grad­u­ates of this pro­gramme will find ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties in the de­sign and de­vel­op­ment of emerg­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tions tech­nol­ogy, dig­i­tal com­mu­ni­ca­tions and sig­nal pro­cess­ing, wire­less sys­tems and the de­vel­op­ment of telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions hard­ware and soft­ware.
