Master in telecommunications
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.
