Wireless communications are pervasive in our lives. They have grown in recent years to include everything from personal communications networks to governments, hospitals and neighbourhood businesses. And there’s no end in sight to the growth of our wireless world.
George Brown’s leading-edge Wireless Networking postgraduate program is designed to put you at the centre of this exciting world by giving you high-demand skills in radio frequency (RF), cellular, broadband and advanced data communications.
We offer you a unique choice of career direction. You can specialize in:
- Broadband and Mobile Communications
- Network and Systems Security
- Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) Technologies
Other program advantages:
- We have departed from the traditional lecture-based course structure. Students learn in labs by practicing on the equipment that they will use when they enter the workforce.
- In conjunction with our corporate partners, students may be involved in real-world projects for one or two days per week, making proposals and then working in teams to plan projects, set schedules and achieve goals.
- George Brown has created up-to-date wireless, security, VoIP and RF labs so that all students gain individual hands-on experience.
- Students will have access to NetLab, giving them remote access to the Cisco Academy and VMWare labs.
Note: In this rapidly changing industry, program improvements are being made on an ongoing basis, which may result in course changes. Changes are made in consultation with our Program Advisory Committee, which is composed of academic staff and industry representatives from small, medium-sized and large corporations.
*If you enrol in the program in January, you must complete semester 2 in the summer (May to August) of the same year.
Program Standards and Learning Outcomes
The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities has established Program Descriptions for college programs of instruction which do not operate under a specific provincial Program Standard. The Program Description typically describes the program purpose (a brief description of the program, potential employment opportunities and general admission requirements) and program goals (similar to program-level learning outcomes, which guide the curriculum).
