Computer Networking

This is a practical industry-focused course which enables students to plan and develop complex networks; the course focuses on practical networking rather than abstract concepts in data communications; although the necessary background is introduced as appropriate, the course on the whole deals with problem solving and the provisioning of real network services, using current and emergent network hardware and protocols along with the development of applications to exploit these technologies; in addition to developing an understanding of underlying principles, students are engaged in the practical application of network design, implementation, trouble-shooting and management for real-world problems; for dissertations/theses, students are expected to investigate cutting-edge technologies, implement and test novel networking solutions, or develop or analyse original network applications.
