Dear students of Data Networks,

the results of the re-exam of the final exam are now available in dCMS. We had 47 participants, out of which 34 (72.3%) achieved 30 or more points and thus passed the exam.

We will offer the opportunity to inspect our correction of your exams on Thursday, December 10, between 15:00 and 18:00 in building E1 3, room 528. As usual, we will assign those interested in looking at their exam correction to time slots. Thus, if you are interested, please register for the inspection in exactly one of the two available time periods (15:00-16:00, 16:00-18:00) on your personal page in dCMS by December 8. We will also limit the number of participants in the inspection and assign the available time slots in a first-come, first-served manner, so the registrations in dCMS may close early.

 

Best regards,

Arnd Hartmanns & the DN2015 team

Data Networks

This core course (Stammvorlesung) adresses Bachelor and Master students in Computer Science and related programs. Bachelor students should have passed the base lectures Programmierung 1 and Programmierung 2. Some programming experience (e.g. in C, Java, C# or JavaScript) is recommended. The language of the course is English.

Contents

The course will explain data networks. Internet protocols will be used to motivate and explain basic concepts in data networks, as the Internet is today's data network par excellence. Hands-on experience will be gained in programming labs.

The course will roughly follow the book Computer Networking – A Top-Down Approach by James F. Kurose and Keith W. Ross (sixth edition). There will be reading assignments based on this book. While the library has a few copies available, we do recommend (groups of) students to obtain their own copy of this book.

Organisation

Lectures take place between April 22 and July 27 at the following times:
Mondays 14:15-16:00 Building E2 5, Lecture Hall II
Wednesdays 14:15-16:00 Building E1 3, Lecture Hall 002

We have reserved the following times for tutorials:
Tuesdays 10:15-12:00
  14:15-16:00
  16:15-18:00
Wednesdays 10:15-12:00
The actual tutorial times will be determined based on demand at the beginning of the lecture period. We cannot guarantee that there will be tutorials at all of the times listed above.

To pass the course, students must pass the mid-term exam (or its re-exam), the final exam (or its re-exam), and the programming and modelling labs. The exam schedule is as follows:
Mid-term exam Wednesday, June 10 60 min in 14:00-16:00
Final exam Wednesday, July 29 60 min in 14:00-16:00
Mid-term re-exam Tuesday, October 06 60 min in 14:00-18:00
Final re-exam Tuesday, October 06 60 min in 14:00-18:00

The duration of each exam is 60 minutes. The re-exams may be oral exams of a different duration. The final grade will be determined by the results of the two exams (or the corresponding re-exams, if the respective result is better) plus the results of the programming and modelling labs.

There will be multiple programming and modelling labs. The languages of the programming labs will be JavaScript and Java or C# (student's choice), and the language of the modelling labs will be Modest.
