Some of you may remember a discussion on a proposed TC syllabus and the version proposed by Andrew Plato which included basics science, maths etc. Iâve just been looking at some old ISTC journals that theyâve now put on-line and one (1968) had a suggested course plan for a BSc in Communication Technology that I thought might raise a smileâ Doesnât seem too far away from what was suggested by Mr Plato (general gist!)
