In recent years there have been rapid developments in the field of telecommunication. Mobile telephony and internet have taken over the world by storm. With the revolutionary changes, both these services are available to most of the population these days that too at very affordable costs. There is a rapid advancement in wireless technology too. Optical fibre cables are replacing ordinary copper cables. This has resulted in many benefits including saving of power, efficiency and better availability of spectrums and bandwidth. High speed data services are more the norm these days. It is expected that many more such positive developments are going to take place in the telecom world. As such it is one of the best field to be in.
Eligibility and course duration
B.E./B.Tech in electronics, communication or related engineering streams from a recognized university. Admissions are based on GATE scores or entrance tests.
Duration of this postgraduate course is 2 years.
More about the course
Telecommunication engineering is an offshoot of the electrical and electronics engineering. Development in computer and software engineering is also playing a lead role in expanding telecommunication services in a big way. It is also connected to civil and structural engineering too, as the infrastructure that is to be put up like transmission towers, need expertise from these fields. Since it has a multi-disciplinary approach, you need to study principles and concepts from a host of fields like electrical, electronics, computer, civil, etc. You will be learning about designing and installing principles of telecommunication equipment and system. You learn handling complex electronic switching systems, laying optical fibre cables, managing data systems and providing means for telephone and data services.
Prospects and opportunities
Telecommunication engineers acre required in a variety of fields. With their technical expertise they are able to work in areas such as wired telephone services, wireless telephony, radio & TV broadcasting, satellite communications, broadband services and internet. A host of telecommunication companies are there in this field, both public and private. The telecommunication field providing mobile and data services is highly competitive. As such those who are well trained and skilled in this profession are very much in demand. There are various kinds of roles for a telecom engineer. Depending upon your work area, you could be a telecom equipment engineer, network engineer, central-office engineer, outside-plant engineer, structural engineer or electrical engineer. There are opportunities for doing PhD after this course.
