At present time, the gap between industries and universities is rapidly increasing. Fast development of industry created this gap, because universities are not able to completely follow these changes. Unpredictable fluctuations in industry have made communication engineering education really difficult, in the sense of providing well-prepared graduate engineers. Communication engineering education has to be reformed and ready to use more advanced technologies. We realized that one of the general problems of student`s education is that after graduating from their universities, they are not prepared to face the real life challenges and they are not full skilled to work in industry. In today's environment, technical competence alone is not sufficient for career success. This proposed Communication curriculum will decrease existing gap and bring interactive, creative, interesting, effective learning methods, which will include online education, virtual labs, practical work, problem-based learning (PBL) and lectures given by industry experts. Giving short assignments, presentations, reports, research papers and projects students can significantly improve their non-technical skills. Also, we included ICT technologies into our proposed curriculum for teaching and learning methods. We added collaborative learning between students through team work which builds theirs skills for industry environment. The goal of this research is to introduce new communication engineering curriculum in order to get fully constructed graduate engineer to be ready for real industry work.
