TTM4517 - Advanced topics in Networking - Networked Systems, Specialization Course


Lessons are not given in the academic year 2022/2023

Course content

The course is not given in 2022/23. The course includes topics which are selected to give master's students in their final year state-of-the-art knowledge and skills related to an emergent aspect of communication technology, within networking, services and system engineering, or quality of service (QoS) issues. A topic may be common for a group of students or individual for a student. Students should study state-of-the-art material on a specific topic, e.g. tutorials, standardization documents, surveys, and/or research papers, and, if relevant, carry out modelling, analysis, simulation, developments or experiments related to the topic. An independent assessment of included material should be carried out.

Learning outcome

A. Knowledge:

1) In-depth insight into the specific topic and understanding of its broader context.

B. Skills:

1) The ability to obtain insight from diverse and "undigested" sources of information.

2) Training of analytical and critical attitude in assessing technological development.

C. General competences:

1) Present / report orally and in writing.

2) Participate in technical discussions. 3) Responsibility for planning and progress.

Learning methods and activities

The course is a self-study, individually or in groups, if approved. Consultation hours where the students may raise issues or ask questions are scheduled at roughly weekly intervals. Approximately mid semester, a seminar is arranged in which the students present insight obtained so far. In addition, they should raise issues for discussion. A second seminar is held at the end of the semester in which the outcomes of the individual studies are presented and discussed based on prepared feedback from other students.
