In recent times, computing and data communications have tended to converge, such that data communications has bcome an integral part of almost every computer system.
This course is based around two central themes. The first is the logical extension of the material covered in the preceding Computer Engineering courses. This involves a more detailed study of advanced computer design including memory management, virtual memory, process management, cache memory, processor architectures and performance. The second theme is the design, implementation and use of data communication systems.
This section, comprising approximately half the course, covers LAN protocols such as Ethernet, together with higher level protocols such as TCP/IP. An in-depth understanding of the theoretical and practical operation of these protocols is emphasised by implementation examples.
Before enrolling in this course you need to:
Allow approximately 8-9 hours study time per week for each 15 credit course. Your workload may be higher around assessment due dates or exam time.
