" This course will cover fundamentals of digital communications and networking. We will study the basics of information theory, sampling and quantization, coding, modulation, signal detection and system performance in the presence of noise. The study of data networking will include multiple access, reliable packet transmission, routing and protocols of the internet. The concepts taught in class will be discussed in the context of aerospace communication systems: aircraft communications, satellite communications, and deep space communications."
This course provides an introduction to the technology and policy context of public communications networks, through critical discussion of current issues in communications policy and their historical roots. The course focuses on underlying rationales and models for government involvement and the complex dynamics introduced by co-evolving technologies, industry structure, and public policy objectives. Cases drawn from cellular, fixed-line, and Internet applications include evolution of spectrum policy and current proposals for reform; the migration to broadband and implications for universal service policies; and property rights associated with digital content. The course lays a foundation for thesis research in this domain.
Computer Networking: Principles, Protocols, and Practice was written and submitted to the Open Textbook Challenge by Dr. Olivier Bonaventure of the UniversitĄ_ĺŕ catholique de Louvain (UCL) in Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium. He also serves as the Education Director of ACM SIGCOMM. Computer Networking has already been used by several universities around the world, including UCL.
Networking is defined as “the action or process of interacting with others to exchange information and develop professional or social contacts,” and can be a powerful job search strategy. Making connections can not only help you find out about job opportunities, but may also connect you to people who can help you get the job. You can use relationships you already have to network, such as friends and family. However, it is also important to find other opportunities to network, and this can take place through your involvement in extracurricular or community activities, by volunteering in your community, or simply through the people that you know!

"Computer Networking : Principles, Protocols and Practice" is an open-source ebook that explains the main principles of Computer Networking and the key protocols that are used on the Internet.
The first part describes the theoretical foundations of this domain as well and the main algorithms and protocols.
The ebook is intended to be used for an upper-level undergraduate networking course. The second part contains a detailed explanation of the main Internet protocols including HTTP, DNS, TCP, UDP, IPv6, BGP, RIP, OSPF, Ethernet and WiFi.
The last part contains exercises and practical labs to allow the students to test their knowledge.
The Computer Networking: Principles, Protocols and Practice textbook is one of the winners of the first Open Textbook challenge organised by the Saylor foundation in the US.
An introduction to the basic principles of computer systems with emphasis on the use of rigorous techniques as an aid to understanding and building modern computing systems. Particular attention paid to concurrent and distributed systems. Topics include: specification and verification, concurrent algorithms, synchronization, naming, Networking, replication techniques (including distributed cache management), and principles and algorithms for achieving reliability.
