Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Apply advanced knowledge to design, develop and deploy networks using IPv4 and IPv6 addressing schemes.

Analyze various network building blocks to choose the right hardware for the design of a networking confirming to the user requirement. Depending on the given address space provided, students need to design an appropriate addressing scheme that consists of both IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

02. Accurately and effectively design Local Area Network (LAN) to user specifications including VLAN when appropriate.

Students learn to design LAN based on user requirements. Lectures and labs deal with customization of traffic classes using Quality of Service; incorporate redundancy using vendor-neutral protocols.

03. Implement secure routing protocols to integrate a designed campus network with Internet.

Several labs and lectures deal with various ways of securing a network through the use of ACL, VPN, IPSec and implement an appropriate routing protocol to establish connectivity between a campus LAN and Internet.
