M. Tech | Digital Communication & Engineering

Course Overview

What is Digital Communication?
Digital Communication Engineering focuses on providing a sound theoretical background as well as good practical exposure to students in the communication and networking areas. It is intended to provide a modern, industry-oriented education in communication applications. It aims at producing trained professionals who can successfully meet the demands of the fast-growing Telecommunication industry. Telecommunication Engineers manage different types of technologies that allow us to communicate. They research, design and develop satellite and cable systems, mobile phones, radio waves, the Internet and e-mail.

What is the difference between Digital Electronics and Digital Communication?
The Digital Electronics course delves into the concept of the states assignment problem and how it affects the structure and complexity of sequential machines, serial decomposition, parallel decomposition of the machines, synthesis of multiple machines and state identification experiments which are designed to identify the unknown initial state of the machine and fault detection experiments.

On the other hand, Digital Communications is a broad-based field with its technical foundation in Electronics, Mathematics and Communications. Students receive in-depth training in Digital Communication, Wireless Mobile Networks, Antennas Design, Multimedia Communication, Mobile Technologies, Electronics and more.

What will I study in the course?
Students will learn Network Simulator, Modern DSP, Antennas and Advanced Digital Communication through hands-on training. Practical exposure to these concepts steers graduates towards exploring career options as telecom engineers in satellite communication, mobile communication, network security and IP telephony, the complexity of Radio Frequency (RF), optical and wired data communication systems

Besides in-classroom learning, what other opportunities do I have to learn?
The technical course curriculum, trendy industry-ready and certification courses enable our students to pursue various career opportunities in industry such as Network Engineer, Installation Engineer, Planning Engineer, etc in any field related telecommunication technology.

Telecommunication Engineers manage different types of technologies that allow us to communicate.
