CSCI 379 Computer Networking

(Formerly MAT 379

3 hours 

The principles and methodologies used in the design and implementation of modern computer networks and networked information systems are studied in detail. Topics include shared use of a multiple access channel, error detection and recovery, and flow and congestion control. Packet switched networks and routing protocols are examined, and procedures for secure and reliable transport over best-effort deliver systems are presented. In addition, communication protocols above the transport level, for example, protocols that support the Internet and current Internet applications such as Web servers and clients, are discussed. Network programming is introduced, and students will be expected to develop several client/server applications.
