CET704 Fibre Optic Network Design II

Course Provider

School of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE)



Academic Unit



Today the broadband network requires the devices to be operated at high speed. The objective of this course is to provide the complete understanding  principles of high speed devices such as Fibre based amplifiers, optical  couplers, Electro optic Modulators, Multiplexers, optical switches. Design  examples will be discussed including few case studies. The knowledge gained  can be used in the ICT industry to address technological challenges for  Smart Cities, Smart Nation, Future Communications and Internet of Things  (IOT).

This course is part of:
- Graduate Certificate in Information and Telecommunication Engineering
- FlexiMasters  in Information and Telecommunication Engineering
