Designed and delivered by a team of experienced industry-based tutors, this course will extend and enhance your current knowledge and technical skills, giving you the edge needed for a successful career in telecommunications and networking. The course is designed to provide you with strong foundational knowledge, focusing on the planning, design, implementation, management and maintenance of telecommunication systems and networks. Hands-on practical work with the latest telecommunication hardware and software technology is an essential part of the course. Study a broad range of electives in IT, computer networking, systems analysis, and security to graduate ready to take on a range of roles in the industry.
Take your knowledge beyond the classroom and apply it to real-world settings in your industry internship. You’ll gain valuable experience while expanding your network for future job opportunities. The course also helps you develop the “soft skills” employers are looking for, such as communication, collaboration and project management.
Change the way you learn with Work Integrated Learning and Capstone Projects
As part of Master of Engineering (Telecommunication) degree, you will have access to Work Integrated Learning unit and two Project Units:
MIT’s School of IT & Engineering have designed these units to provide you with real world, experience, working for an industry client. The Industry Experience unit will require you to undertake twelve weeks (full-time) or 24 weeks (part-time) industry placement. The additional two project units will provide you with a capstone final year project in a team environment through research, analysis and development in the Telecommunications industry. You will tackle real world complex problems with technical and creative skills.
Our past students have worked on capstone projects such as:
As an MIT student, you will have access to the state-of-the-art labs and facilities. All MIT’s labs are equipped with the latest software to hone your skill. You will also get access to MIT’s Library of the latest books/ eBooks and hundreds of online Academic publications that will keep you knowledgeable of the latest and greatest. With 24 hour digital access, you are never too far away from the latest news and journals in the academic/research space.
Learn from experts
Our school attracts some of the best minds in the engineering and networking field, like IoT, mobile and 4G expert Professor Johnson Agbinya, also Head of School (SITE).

The internship I’m undertaking as part of my degree has taken my learning to a whole new level. My role as Project Coordinator takes me on fieldwork projects for Telstra where I get hands-on with diagnosing and fixing faults to power panels– something that is directly related to my studies!
