Online Wireless Communication's Bachelor's Degree Course Curriculum

Online bachelor's degree programs in wireless communications are not currently available; however, several colleges do offer online graduate certificate courses on the subject. These online wireless communications certificates are geared toward individuals with electrical engineering training and may help to advance careers. Graduates are qualified for work in test engineering, product development, system design and quality control. Average salaries for telecommunications engineers ranged from $55,474, for entry-level positions, to $102,134 for more experienced communications engineers, noted Salary.com.

Online wireless communications programs generally require the completion of one required course and three elective courses, accounting for 12 credit hours. The following list indicates possible courses offered at the graduate certificate level, according to the Polytechnic Institute of New York University which offers an entirely online wireless communications post-bachelor's certificate (www.poly.edu).

  • Digital Communication Fundamentals: Topics of study include coding and modulating for digital systems with a summary of fading multiple path conduits.
  • Theories in Information: This course covers statistical measurements of information in addition to subjects like entropy, source coding and dispersive channels.
  • Probability: Students learn about probability factors, including variables, maximum likelihood, parameters and order statistics through the introduction of industry-noted theorems, such as Bayes' Rule.
  • Personal Communication Systems and Wireless Communications: Students learn about the scientific and technological aspects of cellular communications and wireless local area networks.
  • Wireless Communications and Ultra High Frequency (UHF) Propagation: Topics of study include UHF applications, sound waves, transmissions and antennas in relation to cellular technologies.
  • Wireless Systems in Relation to Time and Space: Students learn about spatial multiplexing, trellis coding and multiple-input, multiple-output systems.
