The telecommunications industry has driven technological innovation and provided outstanding career opportunities for people with the right technical and leadership skills. New services offered through the internet, mobility offered by wireless technology, and extreme capacity offered by fiber optics, as well as the evolution of policy and regulation, are shaping the telecommunication network of the future. The MS in telecommunications engineering technology focuses on developing the advanced level of skill and knowledge needed by future leaders in the industry. The program is designed for individuals who seek advancement into managerial roles in the dynamic telecommunications environment.

Plan of study

The program requires 33 semester credit hours of study and includes eight core courses that introduce essential fundamental concepts and skills. Each student is required to complete a comprehensive exam or, with faculty approval, a capstone project or a master’s thesis. The remaining credits consist of technical electives or other approved graduate courses.

Comprehensive Exam/Project/Thesis options

All students are required to complete a comprehensive exam at the conclusion of their course work. The comprehensive exam focuses on knowledge of the core competencies, theory and foundation principles, and application of this knowledge to a variety of scenarios. Students who wish to complete a graduate project or thesis under the supervision of a faculty adviser (in place of the comprehensive exam) must have the approval of the faculty and the graduate program director.

Additional information

- Transfer credit

A limited number of credit hours may be transferred from an accredited institution to the program. Please consult the department chair for more information.

- Other approved electives

All students may take three credit hours of graduate elective course work from other graduate programs subject to the approval of the graduate program director. Students often choose to include courses from Saunders College of Business, B. Thomas Golisano College of Computing and Information Sciences, or Kate Gleason College of Engineering. The number of elective credits depends on which completion strategy faculty have approved for the student, the student's choice of thesis, project, or comprehensive exam option.

- Research and cooperative education

Students have the opportunity to apply for research projects or a cooperative education experience. While not a requirement of the program, these opportunities increase the value of the program and the marketability of its graduates.

International Students

International applicants whose native language is not English must submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Minimum scores of 570 (paper-based), or 88-89 (Internet-based) are required. Applicants with a lower TOEFL score may be admitted conditionally and may be required to take a prescribed program in English and a reduced program course load. International applicants from universities outside the United States must submit scores from the Graduate Record Examination (GRE).
