Brief Description

This is a fourth trimester core unit out of a total of 12 units in the Master of Engineering (Telecommunications) MEng(Tel). This unit addresses the MEng(Tel) course learning outcomes and complement other courses in a related field by developing students’ specialised knowledge in telecommunication networks and applying critical skills in project management and telecommunication equipments such as Emona ET101, TIMS modules, antenna lab and GSM trainer. For further course information refer to

This unit provides students with an in depth discussion of the ME603 Project 1 concepts, methods and principles of core units of MEng(Tel) and provides students with a capstone final year project in telecommunication system specification, development, implementation, testing and troubleshooting.  Students apply their skills of project management in a real situation.  Students apply what they have learned throughout their course to an application for an actual client in a team environment.
