Telecommunications engineering involves the design, build and management of systems that carry out the transmission and broadcasting of information using wireless signals. Telecommunications engineers design, implement, and optimise a company's wireless LAN and other wireless technologies.
The Master of Professional Engineering (Telecommunications) is a 3 year full-time course delivering technical and professional outcomes that will allow you to be recognised as an Australian graduate engineer in this field. This program was created due to rapid convergence of wireless and network engineering.
The Master of Professional Engineering (Telecommunications) has been accorded full accreditation at the level of Professional Engineering by the industry governing body, Engineers Australia http://www.engineersaustralia.org.au/
If your bachelor's degree included foundational engineering units, you may be given advanced standing and be eligible to enrol either in a reduced length graduate certificate or directly into the Master of Professional Engineering. Entry pathways are available for students with widely varying backgrounds.
In this course you will engage in areas of study including mobile networks, satellite communication systems, gigabits wireless systems, and radio frequency engineering. You will also have the opportunity to complete either an engineering project or research at the end of the course.
