Internet Technology


To provide a practical understanding of computer networks with respect to system architectures, protocols, and client-server interaction.  These objectives are accomplished through extensive laboratory exercises.

- A grade below a "C" in a prerequisite course will not satisfy that prerequisite requirement.
Fall, Spring, and Summer

Communication media; protocol layers, TCP/IP protocols, wireless protocols, high speed protocols, routing, and switching architectures.
Interprocess communication, client-server interaction, and socket programming.
Emerging trends and technologies such as high speed asynchronous transfer mode (ATM) communication, wireless communication, and videoconferencing.

Expected Work: 

Homework and programming projects; final design/analysis project

Midterm exam
Learning Goals: 
Computer Science majors ...
  • will be prepared to contribute to a rapidly changing field by acquiring a thorough grounding in the core principles and foundations of computer science (e.g., techniques of program design, creation, and testing; key aspects of computer hardware; algorithmic principles).
  • will acquire a deeper understanding on (elective) topics of more specialized interest, and be able to critically review, assess, and communicate current developments in the field.
  • will be prepared for the next step in their careers, for example, by having done a research project (for those headed to graduate school), a programming project (for those going into the software industry), or some sort of business plan (for those going into startups).
