Primary mission of TED is providing education of telecommunications engineers, at BSci and MSci levels. As of recently, the department has been successful in nurturing doctorate in the telecommunications field, having by 2011 produced seven PhDs. Two more are slated to defend their dissertations by the end of 2012.
 
Along with the educational activities, TED staff had been actively engaged in research activities. TED was among pioneers of the new research thread on the quality of service and quality of experience in mobile communications, with some prominent international publications and several research grants.
 
More recently, TED attention had been shifting to other aspects of smart wireless communications, such as the topic of Cognitive Radio and Software Defined Radio.
 
In 2012 the long serving Head of Department Prof. Kajackas stepped down, and Dr. Arturas Medeisis had been appointed as the new head.
