New cable TV technology curriculum available online
RIT’s College of Applied Science and Technology is partnering with the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers to create a cable-centric educational program for telecommunications technicians and engineers in the cable industry.
The program, called Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers Cable College at RIT, is being offered online. The society’s education advisory board, which is comprised of representatives from Comcast Cable Communications, Cox Communications, Charter Communications and Time Warner Cable, will assist in reviewing and guiding the curriculum.
“This ultimately should help us to develop new courses that give our students new choices in breadth and depth,” says Mike Eastman, chair of the Electrical, Computer and Telecommunications Engineering Technology program.
Courses are offered at both the undergraduate and graduate levels through both the telecommunications engineering technology program and the Center for Multidisciplinary Studies. Certificate programs are also available. Eastman is hopeful that the program will eventually grow to include several hundred students.
