Teaching Staff and Resources

The general competence of the faculty members is evident through their postgraduate qualifications, field of expertise and teaching experience, communication capacity and commitment for developing an improved and effective engineering program. 

Currently, the TELG has a mix of full-time professors, part-time professors and instructors. For the professional courses only, the TELG program has a total faculty of 45 lecturers of which 21 have tenure (T). Only 8 professors have a PhD level whereas the remaining have Master degrees. A percentage of those faculty members work primarily in other programs at FIEC and contribute partially with the Telecommunication Program. Specifically, the TELG program includes four PhDs with specialization in Telecommunications. In the academic year 2018-2019, 91% are full-time faculty and 9% part-time. In general, each tenured professor is hired by means of a public selection process based on competitive merit and fulfilling a series of strict requirements. 

The Telecommunications Engineering program has laboratories for student service and in some cases for the provision of services to private and public companies. These laboratories are:

  • Telecommunications Laboratory
  • Telecommunications simulation laboratory.
  • Radiocommunication Laboratory.

Additionally, there are 4 full-time instructors (Telecommunications Engineers) who supervise laboratory experiments. Those instructors were recruited through public selection processes (“Regulations for hiring contract instructors in ESPOL”- Regulation 4268).
