This course covers everything from wide area networks that enable you to communicate with computers from Scarborough or Singapore to personal area networks that you can carry around in your pocket.

Students will experiment with Ethernet and Wi-Fi, get up close and personal with the Swiss Army Knife of computer protocols, TCP/IP. Master, plus the dreaded Seven Layer OSI model. Learn how to design and maintain secure, reliable computer networks. Learn to be the one person in the building who does not panic when “the Internet is down.”

Although new operating systems, terabyte hard drives, and quad-core CPUs get all the press, for the last twenty years, ever faster, more flexible, and more powerful computer networks have been driving the information revolution. This course will introduce you to the concepts and technologies that control every network from the global Internet to the Wi-Fi router in your home.
