About NET400 – Senior Project

This course will culminate in the application of classroom knowledge and skills in computer-based technologies to solve real-world problems and to develop research and project management skills. This course focuses on high behavior of networks planning, designing, implementing and testing. It will cover network architectures, protocols and performance. Students will work on software and hardware, using available network devices as part of a physical network or simulating the behavior of a network on a network simulator. NET400 has several goals: To learn about network fundamentals; to work on network designing; to incorporate various topics such as IP connectivity, Network Security fundamental and learning the process of planning a project to completion. The objective towards meeting these goals is requiring students to design and realize a modest local area network and or Wide area Network with High level of Redundancy, Availability, and Scalability. This course encourages student enthusiasm, understanding of network operation (on the routing and switching level), student appreciation of the need for thorough testing, initiative in cooperatively troubleshooting the network, and student success in demonstrating functioning networks. The course will integrate many technical topics that students have previously studied. The project goal of designing a network is realistic and the project is modest in terms of necessary equipment and cost.
