This is an elective course for the BS.ITE Information Technology program. It is designed as an intermediate-level course for students who are interested in Networking. Given the role of the Networking professional to select, design, deploy, integrate, and administer network and communication infrastructures in an organization, an effective network administrator must possess the knowledge and skills to properly design, configure, and manage an ever increasingly complex list of essential network services in a more and more divergent and heterogeneous enterprise network and computing environment. This course will introduce students to the complexity of network administration, and provide them with comprehensive hands-on learning opportunities to build a solid foundation in the Networking field.
The primary method of instruction will be lectures by the instructor with examples, demonstrations and drills. Students will also participate through class and group discussions.
