Wireless communications, especially satellite-based communications, play an increasingly important role in modern society, providing a growing number of services to the public. However, despite their rising importance, these technologies are not studied in most engineering technology programs. This paper describes an introductory course on satellite communications that balances a solid theoretical approach with meaningful laboratory experiences. Because the course is flexible, it can be implemented in various engineering technology programs as part of a broad effort to maintain technological currency.
