Communications Systems

Format: Campus

Program Description:

Every day we use a variety of modern communication systems and communication media, including the telephone, radio, television, electronic mail, and facsimile. The Graduate Certificate in Communication Systems provides the basic principles in the analysis and design of communication systems. After studying the background concepts of probability, random variables, and stochastic processes, students will be able to analyze existing or new communication systems. The fundamental elements of all communication systems (transmitter, channel, and receiver) will be thoroughly investigated and a number of practical communication systems will be discussed in detail.

International Student Requirements:

In order to enroll in graduate classes, students must have obtained a baccalaureate or higher degree, prior to the start of the term for which the student is admitted, from a regionally accredited institution or from a recognized foreign institution. International students are not eligible for nondegree/certificate status unless they hold an eligible visa. International applicants are encouraged to begin the application process early. Also, international applicants should ensure all supporting documents, including those required to issue an I-20, are received by the stated application deadline. Only official documentation is accepted and it is the student's responsibility to submit all documents by the application deadline.
