Application Deadlines for Telecommunications Engineering
|Fall: April 15 Spring: October 15|
The College of Engineering offers a Master of Science in telecommunications engineering. This graduate program provides advanced education and research to develop breadth of knowledge and depth of expertise in the engineering of telecommunication networks and systems.
This University of Nebraska-Lincoln program is housed in Omaha, Nebraska at the Peter Kiewit Institute of Information Science, Technology, and Engineering (PKI) which is approximately 50 minutes from the Lincoln campus. Students, however, may take some of the courses through the electrical engineering and computer science departments on the Lincoln campus.
The partnership with PKI provides graduate students unique opportunities for both academic and career exploration. Specialized state-of-the-art laboratories and computer facilities are available including optical, wireless, and telecommunications laboratories; IBM supercomputer facilities; and high speed connections to Internet2 and AccessGrid.
For admission to this program, a student must have a bachelor of science in computer engineering, electrical engineering, electronics engineering, or a closely related field. Applicants with undergraduate degrees in other areas may be admitted to the master's degree program with the requirement of additional course work to eliminate the deficiencies.
Courses and MoreStudents in Telecommunications Engineering are most likely to take courses in:
- Computing and Electronic Engineering (CEEN)
- Computer Science and Engineering (CSCE)
- Electrical Engineering (ELEC)
Students will work with an advisor to create a Program of Studies or Memorandum of Courses during the first half of their coursework.
