Boulder, CO (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
The Interdisciplinary Telecom Program at the University of Colorado Boulder is launching a program to award full-tuition fellowships, covering two years of full-time study, to top Master of Science in Telecommunications applicants in Latin America.
As part of its student diversification effort, ITP is planning to participate in the Linden Educational Fairs to be held in Brazil and Colombia in April of this year. A full-tuition fellowship, valued at about $57,000, will be offered to the top applicant from each country.
CU-Boulder participates in Brazil’s Science Without Borders program designed to enhance student knowledge in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM. Thirty-four Brazilian students have already come to study in Boulder, and ITP is seeking to expand its student reach in Latin America for graduate-level study in engineering.
The M.S. degree in telecommunications offers an educational focus in several key areas: computer and network security, energy communication networks/smart grids, network architecture, telecom policy, and wireless networks and technology.
Established in 1971, the graduate-level ITP is a highly integrated and comprehensive program combining technology, policy and business, along with a lab-rich learning environment. It was the first program of its kind, and it continues to lead in cutting-edge education and applied research.
ITP has more than 3,000 graduates working in companies such as eBay, Google, Brocade, Cisco and Comcast, as well as startup companies, and in leading government agencies in many countries around the world.
