What do Telecommunications Engineers do?
Telecommunications Engineers are creative problem solvers, who continually exercise their analytical abilities. However, in addition to problem-solving skills, a career in Telecommunications Engineering demands the ability to work in teams with others to complete projects. The Department of Telecommunications Engineering ensures that students are given ample opportunity to not only learn the fundamentals of the field, but also understand the practical applications through their lab work and projects.
Telecommunications is an exciting and varied field with applications in satellites, next generation mobile phone, air traffic control, the Internet and much more. New services offered through the Internet, mobility offered by wireless technology, and extreme capacity offered by fiber optics, as well as the evolution of policy and regulation, are shaping the telecommunication network of the future. With multimedia services opening up the possibilities of communications, a number of employment opportunities will arise in the near future.
Who should study Telecommunications?
If you want to be at the forefront of a technology revolution and participate in these emerging areas of development, then Telecommunications Engineering is the right course for you. Quantum development in the field of electronics and communication has created many myriad complexities of the e-world. This has made it inevitable that Telecommunications Engineering has evolved and carved out a distinct identity of its own.
What will I study?
You will study antenna theory, digital communication, information theory and coding, microwaves, Digital Signal Processing (DSP) and its architecture. In addition, you will be introduced to microcontroller applications, analog communication and microprocessors. In this vast and rapidly growing field, you will learn start with the fundamentals of three major areas in computer, telecommunications and electronics, all of which are essential to building your foundation in this exciting engineering discipline.
What are some of the emerging technologies in Telecommunications?
Some of the emerging technologies in the field are IP Multimedia Subsystem, High Speed Downlink Packet Access, Mobile TV, Mobile Virtual Network Operator, 4th Generation Mobile Networks, etc. The curriculum also lays emphasis on these topics.
What will I do once I graduate?
The opportunities are vast and potentially limitless. Many companies such as BSNL, Tata Indicom, Reliance Infocomm, Airtel, Samsung, Qualcomm, Sony Ericsson, Nokia specifically look for candidates with a background in Telecommunications Engineering. Some students choose to opt for higher studies in the field, while others often use their solid engineering background they get at CMRIT as a stepping stone pursue entrepreneurial ventures of their own.
