The objective of the Telecommunications Management Technology (TMT) program is to provide students with the skills required to work with, administer and manage telecommunications networks and systems. Graduates of this program will have the technical knowledge to design, implement and procure telecommunications networks and the management skills to maximize the financial returns on these systems. This program prepares the student for such careers as telecommunications manager, network administrator, telecommunications sales representative, e-commerce developer and customer support representative.    

The coursework provides the technical background to understand the underlying network architecture, protocols, and technology with a special emphasis on case studies and industrial implementations. The benefit/cost analysis of these networks and their impact on the business environment is studied in depth. Students who wish to enter the program as a transfer student are typically students with A.A.S. in Electrical Engineering Technology, but can also have their A.S. in Business.     

A maximum of 64 semester hour credits may be transferred into this program, and students need most of the following courses: Oral and Written Communications, Calculus I, Physical Science, Computer Programming Language and Applications, Social Science/Humanities, Physical Education, Telecommunications, Networking, Business and Finance. Students with less than 64 credits or with deficiencies in the above subject areas are considered on a case by case basis.
