Telecommunications program structure

Although introductory associate degrees and certificate programs in telecommunications are available, it’s more common to study a bachelor’s degree as an undergraduate over three or four years. The duration of your BSc will depend on your study location and whether or not you choose to complete a sandwich year in industry.

Universities in the US follow the liberal arts model, meaning your undergraduate degree will last a minimum of four years. After completing two years of general education classes, you’ll declare a major in telecommunications and take specialist courses for the remainder of the program.

If you’re still eager to learn more, you might be interested in a research-based postgraduate qualification. Master’s degrees normally require one year of full-time study, with PhD projects adding a further four or five years of work.

Telecommunications programs are typically taught through a mixture of lectures, seminars, tutorials, practical workshops, and hands-on laboratories. This combination allows students to develop the theoretical and practical understanding they need.

Each university’s telecommunications degree will vary slightly according to the interests and specialties of its faculty. Nevertheless, the majority of programs will address these core areas:

  • Telecommunications transmission systems
  • Analog and digital telecommunications
  • Wireless communications and networking technologies
  • Engineering mathematics
  • Circuit analysis and signal processing
  • Database management systems
  • Advanced computer applications
  • Foundations of electronic systems and computer networks
