Telecommunications Systems Technology, Associate in Applied Science
The Telecommunications Systems Technology program is an interdisciplinary AAS degree designed to prepare students to enter the high-technology marketplace in telecommunications and management of networking systems. The field of telecommunications is undergoing tremendous change, spurred by the growth of sophisticated hardware, software and networking components such as VOIP (Voice over IP), Wireless and Optical technology. The challenge of integrating sophisticated technology into products, systems and services means that technical professionals must develop a solid foundation and experience in these areas.
The CCM program prepares students for a telecommunications career, starting with entry-level positions such as planning and monitoring network layouts and installations, analyzing and operating networks, and planning and operating telecommunications systems. The students have the option of participating in a cooperative work experience during their program.
