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 College’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
Each George Brown College certificate, diploma, advanced diploma and graduate certificate program is expected to deliver specific program learning outcomes. Program learning outcomes are statements that describe the knowledge and skills that students are expected to demonstrate by the end of their program of study. Programs are designed to deliver both vocation or discipline-specific learning outcomes and more generic essential employability skills (including communication, numeracy, critical thinking and problem solving, information management, interpersonal and personal skills).
In addition to the aforementioned learning outcome requirements, College programs are required to provide students with exposure to a breadth of learning beyond their vocational field, to increase their awareness of the society and culture in which they live and work. This breadth requirement is addressed through additional mandatory General Education courses in the program curriculum.
