Abstract : This thesis evaluated the requirement and provides course improvement recommendations for Telecommunications Systems Engineering EO3502 taught at the Naval Postgraduate School. Other graduate programs in Information Technology Management were evaluated to determine the standard for telecommunications engineering expected from some of the most respected academic institutions. Graduates of NPS's Information Technology Management (ITM) and Information Systems and Operations (ISO) curriculums were surveyed to determine how important telecommunications engineering is for their follow-on assignments. In addition, lesson topic vignettes were developed to provide fleet/field examples to reinforce the relevance if individual topics. Finally, recommendations were provided for improving EO3502 and the ITM curriculum in general.
