Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering (EXTC)
You study this branch and you will become a gadget guru..!
Telecommunications engineering, or telecom engineering, is an engineering discipline that integrates electrical engineering with computer science to develop telecommunication systems.
A telecom equipment engineer is an electronics engineer that designs equipment such as routers, switches, multiplexers, and other specialized computer / electronics equipment designed to be used in the telecommunication network infrastructure.
Nature of the Work
The work ranges from basic circuit design to planned mass developments. A telecommunication engineer is responsible for designing and regulating the installation of telecommunications equipment and facilities, mobile towers, such as complex electronic switching systems, copper telephone facilities, and fiber optics. Telecom engineering also overlaps heavily with broadcast engineering.
Ultimately, telecom engineers are responsible for providing the method for customers to have telephone and high-speed data services.
Telecom engineers use a range of equipment and transport media available from a multitude of manufacturers to design the telecom network infrastructure. The most common media, often referred to as plant in the telecom industry, used by telecommunications companies today are copper, coaxial cable, fiber, and radio.
