Course Objectives and Outline
      Using the Internet as a vehicle, this course introduces the underlying concepts and
      principles of modern computer networks, with emphasis on protocols, architectures, and
      implementation issues. Students will first learn how to implement network applications
      (e.g., e-mail, ftp) using the existing network protocols and architectures. Students then
      study how/why these protocols and architectures work by using the layered organization
      of the Internet in a top-down fashion: Application, Transport, Network, Data Link and
      Physical layers. The course will also cover advance topics including quality-of-service
      (QoS), wireless networking.

      Midterm:     20% (TBD, but before Drop Date Tuesday, March 25th)
      Quizzes&Att 10% (the lowest quiz grade will be dropped)
      Final Exam: 30% Tue, May 06, 07:30 am - 10:00 am
      Assignments: 40% (Programming prj. and problem solving ! NO LATE HW !)
      Make-up examinations will be given if you have an officially acceptable excuse.
