Telecommunications Engineering

What is Telecommunications Engineering?

Telecommunications is the study of how information is transferred from one point to another.

The discipline is wide ranging, covering many application spaces in the area of communications including those which are based on fibre optics, wireless, satellite, deep space, and internet technologies.
