Οι τηλεπικοινωνίες είναι ένας από τους ταχύτερα αναπτυσσόμενους εμπορικούς τομείς σε ολόκληρο τον κόσμο, με εξαιρετικές προοπτικές εργοδότησης. Το μεταπτυχιακό πρόγραμμα στην Μηχανική Τηλεπικοινωνιών του Ευρωπαϊκού Πανεπιστημίου Κύπρου παρέχει θεωρητικές γνώσεις και πρακτική εμπειρία στις πιο σημαντικές πτυχές του τομέα των τηλεπικοινωνιών, όπως τις ενσύρματες επικοινωνίες, τις ασύρματες επικοινωνίες, καθώς και τα τελευταία πρότυπα και τις μοντέρνες τάσεις στον τομέα των τηλεπικοινωνιών.
