    All About Telecommunication Engineering Courses

    Telecommunication engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with the transmission of data across wired or wireless networks. To design and develop telecommunication systems, it combines all aspects of system engineering, computer engineering and electrical engineering. 

    Telecom engineers work on data and voice communications systems such as unwired, wired, satellite and fibre connections as well as data compression, encryption and encoding. To put it another way, telecommunication engineering is present in almost every area of our life - from the internet to GPS navigation. 

    Various reputed public institutions such as the IITs, NITs and self-financing institutions like CMR Institute of Technology Bangalore, KIIT School of Engineering Bhubaneswar, KJ Somaiya College of Engineering Mumbai etc offer various undergraduate, postgraduate and diploma programmes in telecommunication engineering where interested candidates can take admission through an entrance examination score or merit.
