At present time, the gap between industries and
universities is rapidly increasing. Fast development of industry
created this gap, because universities are not able to completely
follow these changes. Unpredictable fluctuations in industry have
made communication engineering education really difficult, in
the sense of providing well-prepared graduate engineers.
Communication engineering education has to be reformed and
ready to use more advanced technologies. We realized that one of
the general problems of student`s education is that after
graduating from their universities, they are not prepared to face
the real life challenges and they are not full skilled to work in
industry. In today’s environment, technical competence alone is
not sufficient for career success. This proposed Communication
curriculum will decrease existing gap and bring interactive,
creative, interesting, effective learning methods, which will
include online education, virtual labs, practical work, problembased
learning (PBL) and lectures given by industry experts.
Giving short assignments, presentations, reports, research papers
and projects students can significantly improve their nontechnical
skills. Also, we included ICT technologies into our
proposed curriculum for teaching and learning methods. We
added collaborative learning between students through team
work which builds theirs skills for industry environment. The
goal of this research is to introduce new communication
engineering curriculum in order to get fully constructed graduate
engineer to be ready for real industry work.
