Course lecturers



Familiarise students with basic and advanced wireline and wireless technologies. Describe the importance of flow and error control in computer networks and introduce the mechanisms for network traffic control. Acquaint students with Quality of Service requirements as well as architectures and mechanisms for QoS acquirement. Teach students to design computer networks parameters in order to optimise network resources and QoS.

Course assessment

Conducting university questionnaires on teachers (student-teacher relationship, transparency of assessment criteria, motivation for teaching, teaching clarity, etc.). Conducting Faculty surveys on courses (upon passing the exam, student self-assessment of the adopted learning outcomes and student workload in relation to the number of ECTS credits allocated to activities and courses as a whole).

Overview of course assesment

Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:

1. analyse the advantages and disadvantages of particular network technologies and architectures based on concrete computer network applications

2. project the parameters of a computer network according to application requirements

3. design and application of appropriate network equipment for computer networks interconnection and integration to a global network

4. critically compare the mechanisms and methods for flow and congestion avoidance in computer networks

5. combine and integrate the mechanisms and architectures for Quality of Service achievement for different requirements of recent network applications

6. aapply methods and tools for measurements and optimization of computer network performances
