CSCD330 is a basic introduction to computer networking. In this class, you will learn networking concepts which will include network topology, network devices, network protocols and network applications. Since this course also includes programming, we will also complete several client/server programs in order to illustrate the programming concepts associated with writing network programs.

Communication with Instructor
E-mail is my main form of communication. You may also call phones listed above, and leave a message on my machine.
This course is more of an applied course where students are expected to be actively involved in learning and applying concepts. Consequently, grades will consist of a number of different components including programs, tests, homework questions and labs. The following percentages will be used to compute your grade:
30% Exams - one midterm and non-comprehensive final
25% Programs - likely 3 maybe 4
25% Homework - from the text and short written work
5% Class Participation
Due Dates and Assignment Requirements
All assignments are due on the date specified for the assignment. Read the assignment carefully. If the assignment says to submit it in printed form, then you must hand in a copy in printed form. If you are not in class, the day the assignment is due, you can turn it in a day late with no penalty IF you turn it in, in printed form. If you need more time, or there are extenuating circumstances, then make arrangements with me ahead of time.
