Telecommunication engineers focus on specification, designing, building, testing and managing systems that transfer, store and manage information via optical fibers, radio frequency transmission or other transmission media.
The bachelor of Telecommunications Engineering at Kyambogo University has been the number one choice for the students intending to qualify as Telecommunication Engineers. The quality of teaching and research has been appreciated by many stake holders and there are so many graduates employed in telecommunication engineering companies in Uganda and abroad.

Programme in Brief
Year 1: This year covers the foundations needed for a telecommunication engineering graduated including engineering mathematics, engineering drawing, mechanical technology, electronics, computer programming and data communication systems. In many of the modules, you will have hands on in laboratories and workshops learning through experience.
Year 2: This year covers advanced principles in Engineering mathematics, digital circuits, design of amplifiers, advanced computer programming, signals and systems, principles of radio and television engineering. You will have hands on experience in the various laboratories and workshops to supplement theory with practical.
Year 3: This year is dedicated to optical communications, antennas and wave propagation, signal processing, network security and control systems. You will also have the opportunity to work on an engineering project as a group.
Year 4: In this year, you will acquire advanced knowledge and principles in television and video engineering, transmission and switching systems, database development and administration, radar, sonar and navigation engineering principles, RF, Microwave and wireless systems. You will be able to work on a project as an individual in this final year.
You will also undergo industrial training during the recess terms at the end of first, second and third years. During industrial training, you will be attached to an industry and you will be able to relate the knowledge and skills obtained from the lecture rooms, laboratories and workshops to what happens in the field.
