Course Description & Objectives: 

The number of computer  networks  is increasing  dramatically.  From small offices to entire countries,  computer  networks  have  become  the  heart  of  electronic communication today. Using established protocols, these local and wide area networks have become the conduit for servers and clients. Of interest today is data integrity and security as well as the “right” to the information communicated   

Learning Outcomes: 

Identify  some  contributors  to  networks  and  relate  their  achievements  to  the knowledge area; identify some components of a network; name some network devices and describe their purpose; describe advantages of a star topology over a ring  topology;  describe  advantages  of a ring  topology  over  a star  topology; define  the  meaning  of  a  protocol;  explain  the  importance  of  security  when dealing with networks; and describe how computer engineering uses or benefits from networks.·        Understand   fundamental   concepts   of  networks   and   their   topologies;   and understand the concept of network architecture and its hardware components.·        Demonstrate  understanding  of the elements  of a protocol,  and the concept  of layering; recognize the importance of networking standards, and their regulatory committees; describe the seven layers of the OSI model; compare and contrast the OSI model with the TCP/IP model; and demonstrate understanding of the differences between circuit switching and packet switching.·         Understand the basic concepts of LAN and WAN technologies and topologies; demonstrate understanding of different components and requirements of network protocols; demonstrate understanding of basic concepts of error detection and correction  at  the  data  link  layer  and  below;  and  design  and  build  a  simple network  by  implementing   (and  designing)  a  simple  network  protocol  that operates at the physical and data link layers of the OSI model.
