Why Certification Matters for Your Employees

The IEEE WCET™ Certification Program was specifically designed by the IEEE Communications Society to address the worldwide wireless industry's growing and ever-evolving need for qualified communications professionals who can demonstrate practical problem-solving skills in real-world situations.

By way of this globally recognized and vendor-neutral certification, employers will have a new:

  • Means to select individuals for wireless engineering positions and projects.
  • Tool for measuring an individual's ability to meet wireless challenges in numerous industry, business, corporate, and organizational settings.
  • Resource to help their business leaders master all aspects of wireless engineering technology for today's ever-growing vertical and horizontal integrations.
  • Opportunity to prepare for tomorrow's successes and contribute towards your business’s sustained success.
  • Way to recognize wireless communications professional staff for their expertise with a globally recognized credential.

The certification exam consists of 150 multiple-choice questions encompassing the wireless areas of RF engineering, propagation and antennas; access technologies; network and service architecture; network management and security; facilities infrastructure; agreements, standards, policies and regulations; and fundamental knowledge.

Help your employees stay ahead of the curve. Support their continuing education and growth. Encourage them to get IEEE WCET™ certified. Learn more about corporate partnerships.

One of the primary reasons why I pursued the exam was for personal satisfaction. I wanted to demonstrate my commitment to wireless engineering and WCET has helped in more ways than I can imagine. It has also created a clear differentiator for me professionally and has helped me become a well-rounded wireless professional.

Benefits for Employers

The certification program is expansive in scope and not based on a specific company's approach. Engineers earning certification will have demonstrated a thorough understanding of different key technologies in the wireless arena, local market implications of wireless communications, and new technology/standards development.

Professionals from companies such as Telefonica Espana, Telstra Australia, Tata Consultancy Services, Ltd., Mumbai, Bell Mobility, Canada, Boeing, and BT (formerly British Telecom) to name a few have shared their insights on why WECT certification is so important.

The greatest benefit of having the IEEE WCP credential, is that it helps one to stand-out among peers and facilitates career progression. To be recognized as a professional in the field of wireless.

Best Readings in Polar Coding

In this Best Readings, we summarize several papers on the theoretical foundations of polarization theory, the construction and decoding of practical polar codes, as well as some generalized polar codes, which can help to overcome limitations of classical Arıkan polar codes. We also focus on practical implementation issues because, despite the simple structure of the encoding and decoding algorithms of polar codes, their practical implementation poses numerous challenges.
