Bachelor of Science in Mobile & Satellite Communication
Course Description

We all hear new technical buzzwords and acronyms all the time: Wi-Fi, SATNAV, GPRS, 3G, 4G, 5G, LANs, Bluetooth . . . but what are all these things? The student will find the answer of all these questions and more by studying Mobile Communications Engineering - one of the fastest moving and most exciting fields of engineering. It has brought about a technological age all of its own, where you can watch video clips on your iPod or mobile; internet and email access is a menu button away on your mobile phone, and in-car satellite navigation (SATNAV) systems can map a route and direct you through the traffic.


The programme will be the first, if not in all Africa, in east and sup Sahara countries that give a BSc degree Communication Engineering that majors Mobile and Satellite Communications related courses. The student will learn about wireless networks, mobile systems communications, satellite communication and network technology, as well as undertaking a project that will focus on his main area of interest. Upon graduating from this programme the student will have developed the necessary skills and knowledge to take up a range of roles within this exciting industry.


As well as gaining the specialist knowledge and skills required to work in the mobile communications sector, the student will be able to:

1.Communicate effectively in a written and oral manner

2.Manipulate and present data in a variety of forms

3.Use scientific principles to design broad ranging systems

4.View problems from a wide perspective

5.Use IT tools effectively

6.Manage time and resources efficiently

7.Work effectively as a team member and as an individual

Appreciate the need for lifelong learning and continuous professional development

Programme Aim

The aims of the programme are to:

1.Equip the students with the Latest Technology in the fields of Digital,   Mobile and Satellite Technologies.

2.Enhance the Knowledge of the Engineers by introducing the third- generation mobile communications.

3.Creating Better Career Opportunities:

4.Create a link between University and Industry:

5.Understand Advanced Trends in 3G/4G with international mobile firms and vendors.

6.Prepare the students for running Research and for getting MSc:

7.Give the student the Opportunity to get Professional Certificate as: Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certification and the Certified Wireless Network Administrator (CWNA) certification, one of the fastest growing qualifications

Programme Objectives

To fulfil the objectives aims and the mission of the Programme, the Programme Educational Objectives are to equip the students with:

1. An advanced knowledge of broad range of topics related to digital, mobile and satellite communication
