Entry Requirements:

Admission into the Master’s degree specialising in IT, or permission from the course convenor.

Course Outline:

In the course, a framework for describing the operation of computer networks is developed. Within this framework, we start with the operation of local-area networks, packet-switched networks and the Internet. After this, the module moves to the uses made of these networks, concentrating on business applications. The effect on organisations of introducing such networked applications is also examined.
