Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Design and implement complex network and analyse various performance issues in the lab

Activities:
Teaching weeks Week 8 till 12 introduce the students to the theoretical knowledge needed for the design of small, medium and large networks. Tutorials during these weeks will deal with the performance analysis and various fine-turning methods for the network. During the lab sessions, students will implement and test their models.
Related graduate capabilities and elements:
Creative Problem-solving (Creative Problem-solving)
Inquiry/ Research (Inquiry/ Research)
Discipline-specific GCs (Discipline-specific GCs)
Critical Thinking (Critical Thinking)

02. Devise the correct Variable Length IP subnet scheme to implement the topology designed in ILO-1

Activities:
Teaching week 1 till 3 introduce the students on IP subnetting schemes, in particular to the Variable subnetting schemes. Tutorials will deal with implementing subnetting schemes for a given network. However, students will learn how to design a network only in Week7. Students will demonstrate their understanding during the hands-on lab sessions.
