  6. 6. Course Title: Project on Real World Application Networking Course no: CSC-451 Full Marks: 100 Credit hours: 3 Pass Marks: 40 Nature of course: Project Course Synopsis: This course introduces students to the practical networking environment. Special focus will be given in enabling students with the skills pertaining to the analysis, design, and development, installation, testing and servicing a corporate scale network. The course has a practical approach to building networks. Goal: To develop the skills associated with design and development of meaningful and efficient network systems for organizations. Course Contents: 1. Problem Identification 2. Problem Specification 3. Analysis and design 4. System Development 5. Installation and Testing 6. System Maintenance The content of this course is divided into six different phases; the students will first involve themselves in identifying a problem that needs to be addressed. Such problem needs to be specified precisely and several solutions need to be prescribed, out if which the most viable will be selected. The selected proposed solution now has to be analyzed properly and design. This might involve the use of several network utilities and tools depending upon the nature of the problem and environment. The designed system will have to implement by choosing a particular platform for development. This may involve the development and installation of the system in the respective environment. The installed system will have to be tested rigorously to check the integrity and persistency. The system designed should be such that it preserves the qualities of a good network system. Text Books: None Prerequisite: Computer Networking Course, Linux Networking, Windows Networking.
  7. 7. Course Title: Internship Course no: CSC-454 Full Marks: 200 Credit hours: 6 Pass Marks: 80 Nature of course: Project Course Synopsis: The students are required to complete a six credit (minimum ten weeks long) internship as a part of the course requirement. Industry is a crucial requirement of the Internship course and this will have to be secured before getting started with the course. The work that the students perform during the Internship will have to be supervised by the faculty members as well as by representatives from the participating Industries. The internship experience is expected to enable the students to assist in the resolution of complex problem associated with some aspect of computer networking. At the end of the Internship, the student(s) are required to write a report on their internship work. Such a report needs to be structured according to the prescribed format. The Report forms a major aspect of the evaluation of the Internship work. Goal: To assist students in focusing their interests, thus aiding in the selection of future coursework and the assessment of ultimate career pursuits. It gives students the opportunity to re-examine their career objectives and explore the variety of opportunities in the field of computer networking. Some Details: Preparation Students, the advisors, and the industry/organization, with which the student team is affiliated, will have to agree on a problem that needs to be addressed during the internship. An internship is designed by the advisor and the student according to mutual interests, needs and availability of related industry/organization. To develop a rewarding program, at the beginning of the internship, the advisor and student are asked to establish an internship plan, in the form of written objectives and goals, and to develop a strategy for attaining those goals. The plan may include a schedule of activities that need to be carried out in order to reach a solution for the problem being addressed. The internship plan is not intended to be rigid. Advisor may be unable to assess certain responsibilities until the student demonstrates his or her ability. The plan should be flexible and subject to revision. The advisor and student should assess the student's progress throughout the term of the internship both to evaluate the student's performance, and to establish new directions as needed. Role of the Advisor • Advisors are expected to share their experience, insight, and enthusiasm with the student throughout the internship. • Advisors should continually monitor the progress of the student, assessing written and oral communications and guiding the development of the student's technical and managerial skills, effectiveness and presentation of self.
  8. 8. • Advisors are expected to submit a post-internship evaluation of the student's accomplishments and abilities and of the internship program in general. Role of the Student In order for the internship to be a mutually beneficial experience, a student should begin with a definition of his/her objectives and specific interests for the 10-week period to ensure that appropriate activities and projects are selected by the advisor and the student. The student will be responsible for the timely completion and professional quality of all activities and projects assigned. The student is expected to speak frequently with the advisor on his/her progress and interest in other projects, as well as to discuss observations and questions about meetings, projects and other activities with which he/she is involved. The student is required to submit to Advisor, within the first two weeks of the internship, a brief plan for the internship. Evaluation Criteria The evaluation of an internship will be on the basis of the following components and percentage: i. Internship Report: 50% ii. Presentation of the work: 25% iii. Internal evaluation by the advisor on the basis of continuous involvement in the proposed work: 25% Text Books: None
