Humber’s Wireless Telecommunications graduate certificate prepares graduates from electronics, computer engineering, physics, and telecommunications degrees for work on the cutting edge technologies in the wireless telecommunications industry.
Courses cover technologies such as: mobile Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA)/Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA)/Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM)/Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS)/Long Term Evolution (LTE) (3G and 4G cellular networks), Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), Synchronous Optical Networking (SONET), Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS), WiFi, Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX), Radio-frequency identification (RFID), remote sensing, Bluetooth technology, fibre optics, and microwave and radio network infrastructure used by fire, health, safety and maintenance crews. The Wireless Telecommunications certificate also covers backbone network infrastructure, including broadband communications.
Curriculum is kept current with the collaboration of our industry partners in the wireless field. Students utilize the latest technologies in small classes taught by industry leaders at Humber’s North Campus in Toronto.
"I competed with two classmates at the Ontario Centres of Excellence (OCE) Discovery conference, and won for my work on a controllable ankle-foot orthotic. This research project enhanced my skills and helped me secure a job in my field after graduation."
Connect to a career in the growing and lucrative wireless telecommunications field.
As of September 2011, 20.1 million Canadians 13 years of age and older used mobile devices, according to comScore, Inc. and that number is increasing. In addition, the international wireless telecommunications market is growing. There are numerous opportunities in the planning, developing, manufacturing, co-ordinating, implementing, maintaining, and management of telecommunications systems for businesses and government.
