The Telecommunications program offers areas of specialization in transmission systems; switching systems; telematics; network planning, and in collaboration with the School of Management, telecommunications management.
The courses offered emphasize modern telecommunications skills in systems planning and engineering, telecommunications software development, and administrative and financial aspects of telecommunications management.
Graduates from the master’s program form the nucleus for effective high-level technical planning and management operations at their employer organizations. Some of the graduates are engaged in planning, development, and service activities leading to the installation, commissioning, management, design etc. of value-added systems. Given the important role of our graduates in the development of the telecommunications sector, the learning is of significant benefit to the users of telecommunications services within the region.
Graduates of the doctoral program play key roles in enhancing the level of education and research in the national universities of the region, and promote and strengthen the R&D potential of emerging regional manufacturing industries.
Research covers a wide variety of topics at the cutting edge of research and development. Specific issues addressed in the broad fields of transmission and switching systems are, for example, coherent optical communications, multiple-access strategies for cellular-mobile and cabled networks, as well as questions of congestion control and new services in ISDN and future B-ISDN networks.
Programs leading to the award of AIT’s Doctor of Engineering, Doctor of Technical Science, Master of Engineering, Master of Science, diploma and certificate are offered.
