Exercises begin on the first lecture week.
The course is an advanced module course in the Networking and Services sub-programme.
The course suits well to students of the other sub-progremmes being interested in learning more about computer networking.
The goal of the course is to make the students conversant with the key protocols that are essential for the operation of the Internet and to understand specifically how the network and transport layer protocols operate, including the design principles used.
Introduction to Data Communications (Tietoliikenteen perusteet) or corresponding knowledge.
A passing grade can be achieved either
- by active participation to the course
- or by taking a separate exam.
The course includes
- 24 hours of lectures (4 h / week)
- 6 * 2 hours of exercises (2 h / week)
- course exam (2,5 hours) (On October 16, 2012 at 16-19 o'clock, room CK112)
Passing the course by active participation requires
- taking the course exam (max. 50 points available, min. 25 points required for passing the exam)
- participating actively in the weekly exercices that may give max. 10 points.
The grading is based on the total points achieved. A passing grade requires at least 30 points in total.
- Active participation to the exercises is highly recommended and known to be useful.
- Collecting exercise points requires active participation in exercises by preparing the answers to the exercise tasks before the exercise group meets. The answers need not to be perfect, but should be in the right ballpark.
- In the beginning of the exercise session each student marks to a name list the tasks that she/he has completed (the name list is provided by the instructor). A marked task means that the student is prepared to present her/his answer to the group.
- Each completed exercise task gives one exercise task point (ETP).
- In total there will be 36 exercise tasks, giving max. 36 ETPs. Roughly 3 ETPs gives one (1) execise point and 30 ETPs gives the maximum 10 exercise points.
The exercise points are valid with the course exam and also with the first separate exam after the course.
