Humber’s Wireless Telecommunications graduate certificate program prepares you with electronics, computer engineering, physics and telecommunications skills for work on the cutting-edge technologies in the wireless telecommunications industry.
Students will become familiar with the infrastructure of communications systems and how to be successful in the communications industry. This wireless program focuses on three main outcomes: RF/optical test and measurement, networking, and troubleshooting a number of wireless telecommunications systems.You will learn to use engineering tools and equipment for testing of systems including LTE/UMTS/GSM drive test tools, spectrum analyzers, network analyzers, optical time domain reflectometers. You will also learn how to troubleshoot and configure local- and wide-area networks (LAN/WANs) at the device and protocol levels. Our courses cover additional networking topics relevant to telecom carriers such as MPLS, VPNs, QoS and VoIP. You will be prepared to understand the technology roadmap leading into Internet of Things (IoT), 5G and data center virtualization technologies.
Students will have access to learn on some of the best equipment available. Curriculum is kept current with the collaboration of our industry partners in the wireless field. Students utilize the latest technologies in small classes taught by experienced faculty and industry leaders.Courses Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the program, a graduate will:
Design, install and test a complete wireless communication antenna system.
Predict signal propagation parameters for the design of wireless communications links.
Understand and describe microwave communication theory and practice used in satellite and terrestrial links.
Demonstrate a detailed working knowledge of the operations of AMPS and NADC cellular systems.
Understand and describe spread spectrum communication techniques.
Explain the theory and practice behind the latest personal communication system (PCS) and technology including CDMA and GSM.
Service PCS phones, cell sites and mobile radios using up-to-date test equipment.
Understand and describe high fibre optic data links.
Program and install wireless local area network links.
Use basic NetWare commands.
Analyze and test PCM systems.

Use digital signal processing techniques to improve signal quality in wireless systems.
The Humber Wireless Telecommunications program had a booth at the 5th annual Canadian Wireless Trade Show on October 28th - 29th at the Toronto Congress Centre. It provided an opportunity for industry members to learn how Humber can help fill the skills gap that they face in hiring new people. There were more than 10 companies, with immediate need, interested in developing a hiring relationship with Humber.
Humber Wireless accepted a donation of LTE drive testing software from Acentury and Accuver. The donation will help Humber Wireless students learn to use LTE drive testing software and post-process the logs to identify issues. Acentury has been a dedicated supporter of Humber's program over the years.
The Canadian wireless industry supports over 280,000 jobs with sector salary average more than Canada’s average salary. In addition, the international wireless telecommunications market is growing. There are numerous employment opportunities in the planning, developing, manufacturing, co-ordinating, implementing, maintaining and managing of telecommunications systems for businesses and government.
As the rate of technology adoption increases in Canadian industry, the Wireless Telecommunications graduate certificate program is preparing graduates for these new markets. A 2015 - 2019 labour market report by the Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) indicates that by 2019, over 182,000 critical ICT positions will be left unfilled.
Graduates of the program work at cell phone service providers, equipment manufacturers, in house information technology (IT) departments, sales departments, and specialized telecommunication and networking companies.
