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.

Combining the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology, the FIRSTRobotics Competition is the ultimate sport for the mind.
The Canadian wireless industry supports over 280,000 jobs with sector salary above the Canadian average. 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, our program is preparing students for these new markets. A 2021 labour market outlook by the Information and Communications Technology Council (ICTC) indicates that by 2021, approximately 216,000 new jobs will need to be filled. By 2021, the proportion of ICT workers who are working in non-ICT industries will increase to 84%. This growing demand for ICT professionals is being created by transformative and rapid advancements of technology such as 5G and Cloud infrastructure.
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.
