The ever-increasing popularity of the Internet combined with significant advances in communications software and hardware has spawned an immense demand for individuals possessing the knowledge and skills required to design, implement, and maintain computer-networking systems of all types. The BSTCET degree program is designed to provide individuals with the theory and hands-on knowledge necessary to meet that demand.

The degree program is based upon a core of mathematics, physics, and electronics courses. These courses provide the scientific and technical background required for an in-depth understanding of the hardware and software aspects of computers and related systems. Building upon this core, students immerse themselves into several telecommunications-related courses that provide them with a holistic perspective of this behemoth industry.

Although entitled a telecommunications degree, this program covers virtually all aspects of modern computer networking. The student’s experience is greatly augmented by numerous hands-on exercises undertaken in the university’s state-of-the-art telecommunications laboratory. Providing the graduate of this program with the opportunity to ascend into management, the degree is also comprised of several management-related courses.

The Bachelor of Science in Telecommunications Engineering Technology program is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET,
