Career Prospects

Engineering is central to an exciting range of businesses and industries, including space, construction, transport, cosmetics, medicine, food, fashion and much more. With engineering, you can follow your interests – if you like sport, you can work as an engineer improving the performance of new tennis rackets. Engineers work in offices, laboratories, film studios, in the outdoors and underground. Engineering today is closely linked with technology, and plays a major role in many technological advances and new device production. You might be reading this on your phone, and that will be thanks to engineers. As an engineer you could be designing colour-matching technology to determine the best make-up for different skin tones or working as part of a team to improve the performance of artificial hip joints.

All the technological changes to modern communications, from blogging to pod-casting, video streaming and  SMS messaging, are all possible because of the work of telecommunications engineers in providing the methods to transmit and receive data. The transmission of data is changing the way we live and this makes telecoms such an exciting, challenging, and constantly evolving area to work in.

People are moving from communications used in a fixed environment, to communications on the move, wherever they are. Engineers must meet the constant challenges of customer demand, but also stay one step ahead to predict and produce new technology that will compete in the marketplace.

Telecommunications engineers plan, design, implement and monitor communication systems and services. They work with microprocessor and computer systems, optics and fibre optic cabling, transmission and switching technologies, radio communications and signal processing. This area also deals with the collection and processing of remotely sensed data from satellite, aircraft and ship radars, and it links in with biomedical engineering on development areas such as speech synthesis and recognition systems.

All fees are in RM (Ringgit Malaysia) currency unless stated otherwise.
