Course Credit Units: 
Semester 2
Year of Study: 
Year 1
Undergraduate or Graduate Level: 
Graduate Level
Course Description & Objectives: 
  • This  course will introduce principles  of optical  fiber communications.  The  course shall provide students with  important issues that affect  how optical  networks  are made,  their  limitations,  and potentialities, and how optical networks fit in with more classical forms of communication networks.


  • Many  developing  countries  are witnessing  an  increase  in roll-out  of fiber-optic  networks.   This will have tremendous increase  in Internet access bandwidth in the region, which will in turn lead to much lower cost.  The goal of this course is to equip our students with fundamental theoretical concepts of fiber optical networks so that they can contribute to the emerging job market.
Learning Outcomes: 

Students taking this course shall be conversant with fundamental issues on fiber optic communi- cation and  networks.  These issues include;

  • Basic theoretical  principles  of optics , components, and designing an optical network.  
  • Additionally, through research  course, students shall learn methods conducting research,  writing the results, and presenting the findings.
