COMPUTER-BASED WIRELESS-LANDLINE APPLICATIONS IN EET PROGRAMS

Willie K. Ofosu

Abstract


For some years past, wireless applications and landline (wireline) applications have been viewed as separate entities. In more recent years, market forces and technology demands such as the increase in mobile and Internet applications, use of computers in wireless applications and increased bandwidth have been the drivers in bringing about the convergence of wireless and landline applications. The advantages to the end user are numerous. Traditionally, university and college curricula have lagged behind developments in industry. To have graduates adequately prepared for industry, it is essential to update curricula with courses based on developments in industry. Through the training program, students should acquire critical thinking ability as well as technical skills in the converged wireless-landline application. This paper suggests a course that can be incorporated in university and college curricula to address this need.
