This is an interesting question, I hope. I want to learn at academic-level about broadcast television engineering (PM my username if you want me to tell you why). I want some good guidance for an organized curriculum. Is private study of this engineering topic possible with the internet and book resources, or even open university courses? What would be the basic requisites to this curriculum? I know that the field of engineering in general requires good mathematical knowledge. Does this apply to broadcast television engineering specifically? I am not making this my career anyway.

So is my desire to teach myself broadcast television engineering possible? If one can teach themselves complicated ideas like OSDeving, there should be a way to teach oneself broadcast television engineering.

Could you define "broadcast television engineering"?

TV broadcasting is a wide topic, from radio/satellite transmission technology to video encoding and transports, and other non-techy things like production workflow, program scheduling and advertisement.

You need to get the overview picture (from google/wiki) and narrow down your scope.

You may need to know about Set Top Boxes, compression formats and algorithms (MPEG...), and cryptography if the channels you are in charge are private (only for the subscribers). Furthermore you may need to know how the cloud computing works as they may broadcast from the Internet, then you must be knowledgeable in scalability, virtualization and in the related subjects.

This doesn't mean I'm seriously going into broadcast engineering, but I guess Google can be overlooked some.
