(1) To introduce the concepts of computer networks and the internet (2) To acquire fundamental knowledge on Internet addressing, Internet protocols, and Internet applications (3) To develop skills in designing, planning and performance evaluation of networks with practical experience.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
This module will be delivered through a combination of lectures, tutorials and practical lab sessions. Concepts, principles & theories are explored in formal lectures and reinforced through tutorials and hands-on labs. Oral feedback is given during tutorials. While the coursework will assess the application of practical skills to the knowledge base of the module, the examination will assess the understanding of the theoretical concepts.

Lectures:   18.00          Directed Study:   64.00           
Seminars/Tutorials:   6.00          Other:   0.00           
Laboratory/Practical:   10.00          Formal Exams:   2.00          Total:   100.00
