Written and oral exam.

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 and differentiate various types of communication networks

2. differentiate physical and logical topology of modern wired and wireless communication networks

3. evaluate a protocol stack based on OSI and TCP/IP reference models in modern communication networks

4. compare and evaluate properties, characteristics and implementation of control, routing and communication protocols on the Internet

5. estimate basic security and quality of service requirements in modern communication networks

6. propose and apply software tools for understanding and operation analysis of communication protocols
