Eligibility:

For single subject courses within Chalmers programmes the same eligibility requirements apply, as to the programme(s) that the course is part of.

Course specific prerequisites

Basic skills in programming

Aim

Computer networks are becoming an inherent, and increasingly important part of many technical areas of today. The course focuses on the parts of data communication that a practicing engineer in general will encounter in his daily work. This is a basic course which offers an introductory presentation of the field.

Goal

The course is intended to provide the student with basic knowledge and skills in the area of data communication and computer networks. As such, the course aims both at students requiring a fundamental level of understanding and at students seeking to specialize in the area.

Content

This course covers the fundamental concepts, design and analysis of computer networks.

A top-down approach is taken and topics covered include: networking applications, content distribution, HTTP, SMTP, TCP, UDP, performance and congestion analysis, IP, switching, routing, mobile IP, local area networks, multiple access protocols (IEEE 802.X and others), bridges, physical media, error-detection and correction, and network security.

Organisation

Traditional lectures will be given where basic theory and important concepts are presented in order to complement and support the course textbook.

Lectures are given every week: As a complement to the lectures, consultation sessions will be offered. A selection of optional homework problems are given in order to provide additional insight into the course material as well as to demonstrate the level of understanding required for solving compulsory homework assignments. In the consultation sessions, teaching assistants are available to assist students with the optional homework problems. Students are encouraged to attempts these problems prior to these sessions. The problems are different for each session. Hence, students are encouraged to attend all consultation sessions.

Practical laborations are included to help students understand protocols and to practically use network equipment.

Literature

James F. Kurose and Keith W. Ross, Computer Networking , Addison-Wesley.

Examination

The student is evaluated through compulsory homework assignments, Lab work and a final written exam. The final grade is based solely on the final exam.

Passing the home assignments and Lab work are perquisites to passing the final exam.
