Wireless communications technology has developed without measure in the past ten years. Initially, the worldwide success of CDMA resulted in an increased demand for engineers skilled in wireless engineering, and opened the doors to the new fields of study like the standards in WiMax, LTE and OFDMA. As a result of these rapid developments in the field, involved individuals need to build and sharpen their skills for present and future Wireless industries.
The Wireless Engineering certificate program is intended to provide practicing engineers, technical program managers and other technical personnel, with leading edge specialized knowledge in 4G systems and networks for advancement in career and productivity. The program also incorporates electives in the latest wireless technologies like MIMO, and beamforming. With the introduction of the OFDMA 4G technology the courses also address changes in the network management to seamlessly move from 3G to 4G.
Note: Communications Engineering knowledge required for this program. Students with a minimal engineering background should enroll in the course Signals and Systems (ECE-40051) prior to beginning this program.
