Description of the educational program «Telecommunications»

Training in this educational program is carried out by the V.V. Popovskyy Department of Infocommunication Engineering, which also implements training of students in the specialty 125 Cybersecurity, the educational program «Information Security Management», and the educational program «Infocommunication Engineering» in the specialty 172 Telecommunications and Radio Engineering. This allowed the department to create a full system cycle of training specialists in the design, administration and operation of telecommunication systems and networks to ensure their cybersecurity. There are 49 lecturers and 15 laboratory technicians among the staff of the department. The department has 11 Doctors of Sciences, Professors, as well as more than 20 Candidates of Sciences, Associate Professors. The teaching staff is constantly updated with young lectures and specialists – graduates of postgraduate and doctoral studies at the department.

The educational and laboratory base of the department includes network, terminal and server equipment of academies, centers and laboratories of companies Cisco, NURE IT Academy, which cover all segments of telecommunication systems and networks: Next Generation Networks, Software-Defied Networks, wireless networks and mobile networks of 2G/3G/4G communication standards, access networks, transport networks, software, technical information protection and network security.
