a. Certificate in Telecommunications Engineering
This is is a one academic year programme (two semesters) designed primarily for entry level students, and those who would subsequently enrol in either the Diploma or Bachelor programme in telecommunications engineering.
The programme provides the fundamental knowledge and skills needed to serve the field needs of players in the telecom industry. It will train technicians and linesmen to operate and maintain telecommunications equipment and plant. Its emphasis rests on a firm practice-based, work-oriented, problem-solving orientation and content
b. Diploma in Telecommunications Engineering
This programme builds on the Certificate programme. It is a two academic year programme designed for middle level managers to equip them with the knowledge and skills needed by middle level personnel. It involves 70 credit hours divided into four (4) semesters of course work, project work, student internship and a one credit management seminar.
The programme provides for specialization options within the curriculum. Students in the programme will acquire the skills needed to function in one of the specialized areas of Telecommunications Systems Management (TSM) by choosing a programme option that will support their interest area – the physical system and its components, or the software that drives the system. In addition, students may choose a path through the programme that will prepare them to make a seamless transfer to the Baccalaureate programme.
c. Bachelor in Telecommunications Engineering
This programme builds on the Diploma programme. It is a four academic year programme comprising eight (8) semesters with a minimum of 136 semesters Credit Hours designed for middle and top level managers. In the first two years, the necessary mathematics, physics, computing and basic telecommunications courses are taken. These courses provide the theoretical foundations essential to the understanding and application of telecommunications. In the final two academic years, students undertake courses from five major areas of Telecommunications Engineering such as Data Networks, Wireless Data Networks, Computer Systems, Signal Processing and Electronics.
