Overview, EE 122 / Fall 2011
This is an undergraduate level course covering the fundamental concepts of networking as embodied in the Internet. The course will cover a wide range of topics; see the lecture schedule for more details. While the class has a textbook, we will not follow its order of presentation but will instead use the text as a reference when covering each individual topic. The course will also have several projects that involve programming (in python).
Required: CS 61A, 61B, Math 53 or 54.
You should know programming, data structures, and software engineering.
In terms of mathematics, your algebra should be very solid, you need
to know basic probability, and you should be comfortable with
thinking abstractly. The TAs will spend very
little time reviewing material that is not specific to networking.
We assume that you either know the material covered in those courses, or
are willing to learn the material as necessary. We won't cover
any of this material in lecture.
The projects will be programmed in Python, but we expect that it will be easy for students to learn enough Python on-the-fly to complete the assignments.
Students enrolled in the class will be given an instructional
account, ee122-??@cory. Account forms will be handed out at
the first lecture (if you did not receive an account form, see your
TA). Most of
the Unix systems have cross-mounted file systems, so you can
generally work on other EECS Unix systems. Your final run
for each assignment must be done under that account, and must run on
