Currently Teaching

EEET-261
3 Credits
This course provides a fundamental study of the technology and practice used in recording, editing, mixing, production, and distribution of sound. Topics include microphone types, selection and application the mixing console, mixing techniques and introduction to Signal Processing equipment and associated techniques, an introduction to the concepts relating to digital audio technology such as sampling, the Nyquist theorem, alias frequencies, quantization, dynamic range, compression and their applications will be covered. Topics include basics of digital audio, session creation, importing media, recording techniques, editing, mixing, and mastering. In addition, the course teaches how-to-listen sonic difference to appropriately apply the technical knowledge and to achieve highest sound quality.
TCET-723
3 Credits
This course covers accepted network design principles and methodologies as they apply to circuit, packet, frame, cell and synchronization networks. Course topics are transmission engineering, traffic engineering models, timing and synchronization, design of voice and data networks, and electrical grounding concepts.
TCET-899
1 - 4 Credits
Study or laboratory work on a topic in or related to telecommunications engineering technology.
CPET-281
3 Credits
This course provides a practical study of voice and data communications from the point of the OSI seven-layer and the TCP/IP five-layer protocol model. Both traditional circuit switched telecommunications as well as IP based communications are studied. This course covers the operation of the lower four layers in detail by examining some of the foundation laws of physics including Nyquist and Shannon as well as selected protocols. Emphasis is placed on data internetworking, local-area networking, and wide-area networking. This course is a problem based course in that students apply the learning to various computer and networking mathematical problems and are assessed on their ability to solve the problem.
TCET-797
3 Credits
The MSTET graduate project describes and presents the results of scholarly research in the field of telecommunications. The results of a MSTET graduate project provide new knowledge, processes, software, or other assets that advance the state of the art of telecommunications or organize or implement existing knowledge in a unique and useful way. Department permission is required.
TCET-760
3 Credits
This course teaches the art and science of metropolitan and wide area network design for both modern delay (data) networks and traditional blocking (voice) networks; the greatest emphasis is on modern delay networks. Both qualitative and quantitative approaches are used as the student progresses through the network analysis, architecture and network design processes. An advanced WAN Fiber Optic design tool, such as OPNET Transport Planner is utilized in a required graduate project. The following are typical types of projects: Write an RFP, design an extensive metropolitan and wide area network using the latest technologies, design an extensive fiber optic network using a design tool like OPNET Transport Planner. Note: Since some students may not yet have taken a fiber course, the OPNET project stresses the use of the tool rather than the specifics of fiber optics.
