Telecommunications engineering at Macquarie University: modernisation and vision

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference proceeding contributionResearchpeer-review

Abstract

The Telecommunications Engineering degree at Macquarie is undergoing renewal, simultaneously with a transformation in pedagogy by the School of Engineering and also a change in curriculum structure by Macquarie University. This work-in-progress paper reports a study of the effect of changes in Telecommunications Engineering education. These include updated technical content imparted through an educational approach which includes project-based learning (PBL), project ownership, replacement of traditional lectures, virtual laboratories and an emphasis on software tools and programming skills.
