From its origins in the military communications networks of the early 1950s, telecommunications technology has evolved substantially. It can now be applied in almost every facet of modern society: banking, reservation systems, office information systems, corporate networks, and the Internet. Because it infiltrates so many areas, the telecommunication networks field seeks those who can operate comfortably in a number of different environments.
NYU-Poly’s MS in Telecommunication Networks program is structured with this versatility in mind. Jointly offered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, our curriculum provides interdisciplinary flexibility through an array of electives — from network security to probability theory and stochastic processes to software engineering.
The knowledge established in core courses sets the stage for the exploration of an evolving field. In addition, our students gain unique access to the New York State Center for Advanced Technology in Telecommunications (CATT) — home to the latest in research and development.
Our MS program in Telecommunication Networks prepares you to design, manage, and operate telecommunication networks. You will accrue hands-on experience through laboratory courses in networking and study with faculty who are accomplishedin the field. You will also address some of the most recent challenges in gigabit optical networks, multimedia communications, and wireless network access.
