what is te?

The telecommunications engineering program is interdisciplinary, requiring a blend of knowledge from electrical engineering, computer science and economics/policy. The telecommunications engineering program focuses on providing excellent education in modern communications networks and systems, preparing students for outstanding careers in telecommunications, data communications, network architecture, and wireless and optical networking.

Both the electrical and telecommunications engineering programs are based on a solid foundation of science and mathematics coursework. Students in these programs are given an opportunity to learn to extend their abilities to analyze and solve complex problems and to design new uses of technology to serve society. The engineering programs provide an integrated educational experience directed toward the development of the ability to apply pertinent knowledge to the identification and solution of practical problems in electrical and telecommunications engineering.

These programs ensure that the design experience, which includes both analytical and experimental studies, is integrated throughout the curriculum in a sequential development leading to advanced work. Design problems are frequently assigned in both lecture and laboratory courses. Students are required to complete a major design project during their senior year. Cooperative education programs with area companies further supplement the design experience.
