Computer Networking: A Top-Down Approach, Kurose and Ross, 5th ED., Addison
Wesley, 20010
1. Computer Networks and Internets, 2nd Ed, Douglas E. Comer, 2000, Prentice

Course Objective:
Networking today involves much more than standards specifying message formats
and protocol behaviors–and it is far more interesting. Professors Kurose and Ross
focus on describing emerging principles in a lively and engaging manner and then
illustrate these principles with examples drawn from Internet architecture.
  Contents of this course are listed as follows:
Chapter 1 Computer Networks and the Internet
Chapter 2 Application Layer
Chapter 3 Transport Layer
Chapter 4 The Network Layer
Chapter 5 The Link Layer and Local Area Networks
Chapter 6 Wireless and Mobile Networks
Course Outcome:
We use the Fifth Edition of Computer Networking to continue with an emphasis on
application-layer paradigms and application programming interfaces, encouraging a
                                         NCUE CSIE Syllabus 2010
hands-on experience with protocols and networking concepts. With this course,
students are taught to integrate the most current and relevant networking

Course Requirement:
The prerequisite for the course is one year of “Introduction to Computer”.
Grading Criteria:
Grades will be based on the assignments/programming labs, presentations,
homework, quizzes, and tests.
