Introduction to computer networking principles and practice.

The course combines theory and practical applications of design and implementation of large and small scale computer networks.
The theory part of the course consists of a series of lectures and seminars.
Laboratory exercises and a programming assignment comprise the practical part.
The current instance of the course combines students from three degree programmes, IT, F and International MSc.

Assessment and work requirements vary a little depending on the programme taken by the student.


Refer to the formal course plan for full details of the assessment of your course, the following is a summary in English.

The theory section of the course is assessed through a five hour written examination and obligatory participation in online written reflection exercises and a seminar.
Practical computer networking competencies are assessed using graded reports from two laboratory exercises and the demonstration of internet programming competence in one programming assignment.

Activity Grading Scale
Examination U, 3, 4, 5
Laboratory U, G
Assignment U, G

To successfully complete the course a mark of G must be achieved for both laboratory reports and the assignment, and a mark of 3, 4 or 5 achieved on the written examination. The final grade for the entire course will be the grade achieved on the written examination.
