Communications and Network Engineering

  • students in computer engineering class



Modern society is increasingly being defined by the high level of interconnectivity between people and modern electronic devices. Underpinning this connectivity are communication networks that pass information on a global scale, but also networks that communicate between devices in the home. By taking this minor, you will learn about network design for wireless, mobile and LAN system networks, communications hardware and software, digital security, and the "internet of things". Students with this minor will be well-equipped to work at the interface of the physical and virtual worlds that will define tomorrow's societies.

If you have an interest in the design and development of communications network computing, then this minor is an excellent option to consider to complement your Computer Engineering degree.
