The way we communicate with the rest of the world is constantly changing, so working in Telecommunication Engineering you can help shape the way the world communicates.

The course provides a firm foundation of these theoretical principles and is reinforced by practical work involving the design, testing and implementation of actual systems. The course aims to produce engineers who are versatile, adaptable and possess technical knowledge and analytical capability together with some of the practical design skills relevant to the modern telecommunications industry.

It’s not easy to juggle job & studies but the lecturers has been helpful & accommodating. The non teaching staff have been helpful in attending to my needs too. Therefore I’m extremely happy with the education & service that Auston is offering me.

Career Opportunities

Telecommunications and Networks Engineers design and install equipment used for transmitting wired phone, cellular, cable and broadband data. It involves working with complex networks, switching systems and copper or fibre optic cabling.

Using their technical expertise, they provide a range of services and engineering solutions related to different modes of communication and information transfer, such as: radio and satellite communications wireless telephony services, internet and broadband technologies.

Day-to-day duties for telecom engineers can vary widely, depending on specialisation – such as telephone networks or broadband systems. Engineers can work in research and development (R&D), creating the products of tomorrow, or they can work on implementing these products and solving how to insert them into a client’s network. Most telecom engineers work usual office hours, although travelling to different sites may be required.

Mode of Delivery

Test/ examination, coursework assignments, presentations and project.
