Course Overview

Due to the rapid introduction and proliferation of telecommunication technologies such as wireless Local Area Network (WLAN), 3G systems, broadband multimedia communication, etc., there is a need for the telecommunication practitioners, technologists and managers to update themselves.

The Master of Science (MSc) Program in Telecommunications is designed for people with a bachelor’s degree in Science or Engineering who are interested in acquiring in-depth knowledge in telecommunications. The program aims to equip students with in-depth and up-to-date technical knowledge based on the latest topics in wireless systems, optical networking, broadband multimedia communications, and convergence protocols.
