**Rationale**

**Aims of the programme**

Bachelor of Engineering with (Honours) in Telecommunication Engineering aims to give the students working knowledge of modern Telecommunication systems and the key issues in the operation of these systems. The programme concentrates on the development of a clear understanding of the philosophy of modern voice and data communication systems. Upon completion of this programme, students will be able to analyse, model, and optimize the rapidly evolving communication systems. Past and current practices, as well as trends in the operation of modern Telecommunication systems will be covered. Other areas, such as the techno-political aspects, in the Telecommunication industry and market are discussed
