Design, build and manage systems that keep people connected across the world
How do we communicate information at a distance? How can you video call someone in another country? How do high-resolution images or streaming videos fly across the internet? The answer: Telecommunications Engineering. Telecommunication Engineers design, build and manage systems that transmit these data signals to keep information flowing.
Technology is advancing at break-neck speeds, which means demand for people who understand and can manage this technology is also growing. You’ll graduate with the skills to design, create and manage technology and systems such as:
Highly ranked, internationally renowned and accredited by Engineers Australia, you’ll graduate ready for success. Learn in leading-edge facilities and you'll get experience using the same technology you’d use in the field, preparing you for your career before you even graduate. Join like-minded clubs and societies. You’ll get to connect with industry professionals through hands-on training opportunities.
According to Job Outlook, the number of people working Telecommunications has steadily grown in recent years, from 8,300 in 2014 to 11,200 in 2019. Companies like Skype, Cisco and Apple are often hiring well rounded graduates who’ve had practical experience.
