wireless_communicationview_robo_blogWhat is Electronic Wireless Communication?

With the increasing popularity of wireless electronic devices, there is a growing need for technicians with knowledge in Electronic Wireless Communication. Smart phones, fixed, mobile and two way radios and wireless networks are all examples of wireless technologies. Other examples include satellite television, wireless computer peripherals as well as Global Positioning System (GPS) devices. Common to all of these devices is their ability to transmit data from one system to another over a distance. Systems such as radio receivers and transmitters, computer networks, terminals and remote controls transmit and receive data using various forms of energy such as radio frequency (RF), laser light, visible light or acoustic energy.

Why pursue a career in Electronic Wireless Communication?

The telecommunications industry is no longer just about voice communications. This sector now hosts pictures, streaming video and other electronic data. Cable television providers now compete with telephone companies to provide two-way communications such as high-speed Internet access, video-on-demand and VoIP or Internet telephony. Digital technologies more efficiently use these networks, creating a demand for more capacity and bandwidth upgrades. Wireless carriers are deploying many new technologies to promote faster Internet access and data transmission resulting in a consumer's ability to download music, video or other content to their mobile devices. Just as the telephone revolutionized our society and impacted our each of our lives, these technologies will greatly impact our futures.

Overview

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Electronic Wireless Communication is a comprehensive, baccalaureate degree program. It provides 62 semester credit hours of instruction, which compliments any accredited post-secondary electronic technology associate’s degree. Day and evening students receive 20 hours of instruction per week for 4 semesters (60 weeks), assuming the entrance criteria have been met.  Students may enroll directly in this degree program without completing an associate's degree for a total of 8 semsters (120 weeks).

The Electronic Wireless Communication program at Fountainhead College trains students in the essentials of electronic wireless communication including: multi-carrier wireless technologies such as CDMA, GSM, EV-DO and Wi-Fi IEEE 802 technologies such as 802.11 (a,b,g,n), 802.15 (Bluetooth) and 802.16 (WiMax). Also taught are the methods of delivery for converged media such as enhanced voice service, streaming audio and video and business related services; IP quality of service (QoS) and real-time traffic analysis, telephony and VoIP, and the development of effective communication, interpersonal and critical thinking skills, and an understanding of wireless security and how this influences business operations.

Objectives

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Electronic Wireless Communication is awarded upon completion of 130 semester credit hours in the following areas: 98 technical (68 from technical occupational associate's program, plus 30 electronics wireless communication) in addition to 32 general education. Prospective students that do not have an associate's degree in electronic technology may be required to complete some or all of the College's Associate of Applied Science in Electronic Technology program before being admitted into this program. The course of study is intended for students who are interested in complementing their previous associate level technical training and experiences. The curriculum emphasizes communication and general education courses in order to gain both the award of a bachelor's degree and electronic wireless communication oriented job placement assistance.

This program is designed to provide quality training in the essentials of electronic wireless communication including: multi-carrier wireless technologies such as CDMA, GSM, EV-DO, and EDGE; IEEE 802 technologies such as 802.11a&b&g (WiFi), 802.15 (Bluetooth) and 802.16 (WiMax); the methods of delivery for converged media such as enhanced voice service, streaming audio and video and business related services; IP quality of service (QoS) and real-time traffic analysis, telephony and VoIP, and the development of effective communication, interpersonal and critical thinking skills, and an understanding of wireless security and how influences business operations.

Award

The Bachelor of Applied Science in Electronic Wireless Communication degree will be conferred on students who successfully complete the academic requirements and fulfill financial obligations.
