The graduates from the Wireless Telecommunications graduate certificate program are 5G ready. The 5G communications platform will support future innovations in the area of the Internet of Things, augumented reality, industrial automation and automated vehicles including drones.
Our graduates build and maintain the infrastructure of communication systems. They learn what it takes to be successful in the communications industry. The wireless program focuses on three main outcomes: RF and Optical test and measurement, IP addressing and networking, and troubleshooting of a number of wireless protocols and systems.
Our graduates understand the engineering tools and equipment for the testing of systems including drive test tools, RF and Optical test equipment, protocol analyzers, and virtualization and virtualized tools.
Students will have access to learn on some of the best and latest equipment available. The curriculum is kept current with the collaboration of our industry partners in the wireless field. Students utilize the latest technologies and attend small classes taught by experienced faculty and industry leaders.Courses Learning Outcomes

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, the Wireless Telecommunications graduate certificate program is preparing graduates 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.
