In this blog I am going to share information about career options in telecommunications. 

Telecommunication has brought the world very close, so much that in a minute we can establish an audiovisual contact with a person sitting several kilometres away from us. Someone has rightly said that because of telecommunications, the world has become a global village. The telecommunication industry delivers cellular phones, telephones, mobile internet, broadband, television, satellite communications and other services to the customers. The industry primarily means to deliver means of communication for distantly placed people with the help of technology for varied purposes like business, household or private activities, education, sports etc. There’s hardly anybody in India who does not own a telephone or a mobile! Being in touch with friends or family through mobile is commonplace, these days!

In India, courses available for telecommunications are B.E. (Bachelor in Engineering) in telecommunications, B.Tech (Bachelor in Technology) or B.Sc in telecommunication! Various technology institutes, universities and colleges are providing courses in telecommunication. Post graduation courses are also available in the said technology universities for engineering colleges in India. Some well known institutes for telecommunications are Certificate courses in Troubleshooting and networking, Certification in networking and telecommunication, Certificate courses in TCP/IP and Networking; Certificate courses in Cisco Networking. These diploma and certification courses add more to a mere graduation degree in telecommunication.

The major areas in telecommunication which are focused today are Optical networks, Wireless networks, Broadband technologies, Next generation networks etc. India is the second largest telecom in the world.
