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:
- Long Term Evolution (LTE) and Broadband Technologies
- Advanced Network 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, RF and LTE 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.
- After finishing the program, students will have bridging options to other post-secondary and postgraduate programs in the School of Computer Technology.
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.
Please note: Students who start the program in January (Winter term) will be required to attend classes during the summer months (May to August).
