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, see the section on examination below.


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 based on graded reports from two laboratory exercises and the demonstration of internet programming competence in one programming assignment.

Activity Grading Scale

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.
