U.S. News Lauds NACTEL’s Online Degrees
March 28, 2012
Two degree programs of the National Coalition for Telecommunications Education and Learning have scored high marks in the 2012 U.S. News & World Report’s first-ever Honor Roll for online education.
Last year, more than a dozen IBEW members working in telecommunications graduated from the program with either associate or bachelor’s degrees.
Says Dr. David Sachs, professor and associate dean at the Seidenberg School of Computer Science and Information Systems at Pace University:
NACTEL provides certificate programs, associate, bachelor's and master's degrees specific to a wide range of telecommunications technologies including fiber and broadband, wireless networking, video and mobile technologies. The IBEW offers a tuition discount for all members.
Registration is now open for the summer session.
According to the NACTEL Web site, the advanced Internet technology degree provides in-depth knowledge for advanced positions within the telecommunications industry, which builds on the bachelor’s degree in Telecommunications.
NACTEL is a unique partnership between unions, top corporations and Pace University. Along with the IBEW, NACTEL members include AT&T, the Communications Workers of America (CWA), Embarq Communications, Frontier Communications and Verizon Communications.
Says IBEW International President Edwin D. Hill:
All NACTEL courses are online and available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The interactive, instructor-led courses offer flexibility, convenience and an industry-relevant curriculum that is tailored directly to careers in the industry.
