Electrical Engineering and Communications Technology
Fast data transmission is important to businesses, households and individuals. The communications industry continues to evolve, as fiber optic cables offer faster and higher capacity than traditional copper lines, and digital phone systems enable users to reach anyone in the world via satellite. In 2014, the United States was the world's largest broadband market, with more than 100.1 million fixed (wired) broadband subscriptions and 331.3 million wireless broadband subscriptions. And subscriptions to high-speed fiber-optic networks grew 13.9 percent from June 2012 to June 2013.1
This booming industry has created a need for individuals with knowledge and skills to develop, install, test and maintain communication devices. These professionals work for data and telecommunications service providers, TV and satellite services organizations, computer network sales and services organizations, electronic systems R&D facilities and entertainment industries.
The Electrical Engineering and Communications Technology program in the School of Electronics Technology at ITT Technical Institute exposes students to fundamental knowledge and skills utilized in entry-level positions in electrical engineering and communications technology. Students will be exposed to a variety of basic electronics and computer principles and technical skills in both theory and practical application in a laboratory environment.
