NETWORK ENGINEERING FUNDAMENTALS

CSE2NEF

2018

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

In this unit we introduce the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. We also look at OSI and TCP/IP layer models to examine the nature and roles of protocols and services at the application, network, data link, and physical layers. The fundamentals of IP addressing and basic concepts of Ethernet will also be studied.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Describe the overall OSI model and how layers interact with adjacent layers in the model.

Activities:
2 hours of lecture on 7-layer network model and standards of Network communications and will acquire skills and knowledge to complete test 1 (30 mins).
Related graduate capabilities and elements:
Critical Thinking (Critical Thinking)
Discipline-specific GCs (Discipline-specific GCs)

02. Identify functions of each OSI layer and apply this knowledge to build a Network.

Activities:
Each layer, its function, and design is discussed in lecture each week followed by laboratory work. These concepts will make them prepare for test1 and Lab Practical test.
Related graduate capabilities and elements:
Creative Problem-solving (Creative Problem-solving)
Critical Thinking (Critical Thinking)
