Currently Teaching

TCET-790
3 Credits
This course continues research work started in TCET-788 Thesis Planning after completion of that initial research and documentation. The MSTET graduate thesis is a document that describes and presents the results of scholarly research in the field of telecommunications. The results of a MSTET graduate thesis provide new knowledge, processes, software or other assets that advance the state of the art of telecommunications, even in a modest way. (Department consent required)
TCET-715
3 Credits
The course provides the student with a solid understanding of access, distribution and backbone network, architecture, equipment and technology related to a variety of service provided networks and services critical to the operation of converged and IP networks. Passive Optical Networking, Hybrid Fiber Coax technology, multiplexing, modulation schemes, coding, signaling and networking protocols used in convergence technologies for the delivery of information in a variety of packet and next generation networks are covered in detail.
EEET-525
3 Credits
Develops the knowledge and ability to apply representative regulatory requirements for wireless mobile and fixed radio frequency communication systems. Topics include: the radio frequency mobile wireless environment, the common wireless systems, and regulatory aspects related to deployment of the wireless infrastructure.
TCET-747
3 Credits
This hybrid course is a cross between an independent study and a seminar course. It provides MSTET students the opportunity to research and report on near term Next Generation Networks (NGN). The course consists of professor provided discussion on NGN followed by each student researching NGN types. Basically, a case study approach is utilized. Immediately after completing the research and written paper regarding one’s selected topic/case, each student will read each others and then present theirs to all other students in the class. As a result, every student will not only benefit from their own research of topics/cases but also be informed of other NGN by other students. Students should already have some understanding of how to perform research and must possess at least adequate writing skills.
TCET-601
3 Credits
This course provides students with the programming, scripting and problem-solving techniques required for other classes in the TCET MS curriculum and to provide the software skills that are required in today’s telecommunication industry. The class will be taught using a programming language that is commonly used in industry today such as Python. The course will cover the following material: Basic programming constructs, Programming best practices, Algorithmic complexity, Data abstraction, Sorting and searching algorithms, Problem solving techniques. Homework assignments will be based upon real-world examples from the telecommunications industry.
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-751
3 Credits
Wireless, digital point-to-point communication systems require a wide array of technologies, some analog (such as antennas, amplifiers, mixers) and some digital (filters, equalizers, decoders, etc.). The course focuses on presenting both system-level and component-level analyses of a complete transceiver operating on a fading channel. Fundamental concepts and classical techniques are presented, as well as some state-of-the-art advances. These concepts are illustrated with hands-on activities using software-defined radio.
