Telecommunication Engineering is concerned with communicating information at a distance. It is strongly associated with data communications, largely because of the tendency to encode, compress and encrypt all information, and because of the growing importance of digital and wireless (e.g. mobile telephony) networks. Today, telecommunication is widespread and devices that assist the process, such as the television, radio and telephone, are common in many parts of the world. Telecommunication systems are generally designed by telecommunication engineers.

Telecommunication Engineers design, develop, test and maintain telecommunications systems. Telecommunication is an important part of the world economy with the telecommunication industry's revenue being placed at just under 3 percent of the gross world product.
