Some of the modules taught in this programme covering the key areas are: Computer communication and Networking, Computer Architecture and Organisation, Analog Comunications, Optical Communications, Electromagnetic Fields, Digital Signal Processing, Embedded Systems, Telecom Switching, Antena and Wave Propagation and Project Management. Final year project is realized by the student through two semesters. The project should cover the knowledges that the student earned through his programme during his/her stay in the university.

Skills Development

The first year is common with other programs in the department to build up the mathematical base, the critical thinking and the problem solving techniques. Starting from second year, students begin to sense the telecommunications flavor, and by the end of the fourth year the complete syllabus of telecommunication systems engineering program will be covered. 

The program includes, but not limited to, analog / digital / data communications, computer networks and security, information theory and multimedia processing, microwave and antenna propagation, optical communications, telecommunication systems (wireless, satellite, radar). The graduates will learn the architecture, deployment and construction of fixed and mobile telecommunication systems.


The Departmental philosophy is to effect positive changes through excellent teaching and learning pedagogy. The assessment methods are designed both to reflect and support the above aims. Students are assessed via a wide range of methods in order to ensure the development of an extensive range of abilities and skills over the duration of the programme. These methods include project realisation, group project activities, presentations, time constrained assessments and assignments.
