Telecommunications is simply communications at a distance using channels that can go beyond city, state and national boundaries. In essence, telecommunications involves the transmission of voice, data, video, or images over a distance by electrical, electromagnetic, light, and wireless media. The bachelor’s degree in Telecommunications explores the broadcasting and communication of data, video and voice through phones, media technology and computers. Students have a choice to focus on either mass media such as film and Television or telecommunication technology.
Telecommunications unites the areas of electrical engineering with computer science – the outcome being the design and enhancement of telecommunication systems. Telecommunications Engineers design, develop and maintain all aspects of voice and data communications systems – from satellite and optical fiber networks to data encoding, compression and encryption.
