Telecommunications Technology Associate Degree
Technological advances are expanding the range of services offered in telecommunications, opening up job opportunities like never before.
That’s good news for students who enter the programs of Telecommunications Technology (TEL). The telecommunications industry delivers voice communications, data, graphics, television, and video at ever increasing speeds and in an increasing number of ways. No longer is wireline telephone communication the primary service of the industry; instead, wireless communication services, Internet service, and cable and satellite program distribution now make up an increasing share of the industry.
The Telecommunications Technology program at TSTC is recognized by the Texas Skill Standards Board. What this means for students is industry-endorsed training that puts them in line to earn industry certifications and licenses such as the Fiber Optic Installer certification, Fujitsu Central Officer Installer Level I/II, the FCC’s General Radiotelephone Operator License and Technical Customer Specialist.
Curriculum and standards were developed and endorsed by industry giants such as Texas Cable and Telecommunications Association, Time-Warner Cable, Cox Communications, Comcast Communications and other industry giants, helping ensure that students get the most up-to-date training in the market.
