Course Catalogue Description: Laboratory: 1 Unit, 3 hours. This laboratory emphasizes on network concepts and protocols through configuring a network using networking elements and PCs, observing the actual behavior of the overall network, and analyzing and evaluating the results.
Crosslisted with CES 440, Co-Requisite: EE465 Lectures, Prerequisites: (EE 314 or CS 315) EE 442 or consent of Instructor.
Students will know
Textbook: Same textbook as for CES440/EE465 lecture, i.e., "Computer Networks & Internet," Douglas Comer, 6th ed, Pearson, 2014, ISBN 10: 0-13-358793-2 or ISBN 13: 978-0-13-358793-7
Classroom Conducts: Side conversations, cell phone, texting, Internet browsing, eating in the lab, and personal inappropriate or offensive commentary or body languages to other individuals are absolutely not tolerated. We are here to learn.
Lab rules: Please follow the lab rules at http://web.sonoma.edu/engineering/resources/lab_rules.html
Special Needs: If you have emergency medical information that needs to be shared with the instructor, or require special arrangements in case the building must be evacuated, please inform the instructor.
|Attendance & Active Participation||10%|
|Quizzes & Midterm Exam||25%|
Grading: A >= 94, A- = 90-93, B+ = 87-89, B =84-86, B- =80-83, C+ =77-79, C- =74-76, C- =70-73, D+ =67-69, D = 64-66, D- = 60-63, F =< 60
Attendance: Attendance is mandatory. There will be no excused absences except in the case of emergencies that could be substantiated.
Class participation: Your participation in the lab is very important and it would help me understand how much you follow the lab experiments. To get the most out of the course, I recommend that you go through the slides and lab instructions before you come to the lab, jot down your questions and ask in the lab.
Lab reports: Lab reports are expected from each student, although some of the labs may be done in a group fashion. You simply need to make a copy of the instruction sheet in MS Words, fill in the answers in the tables provided in the instruction sheet and submit your report in soft copy at the end of each session. Please add your feedback, observations and comments at the end of the report for me to improve the course.
Please email your reports in MS_Word as attachments. If you could not finish the report by end of the session, submit it by 5 PM the following Saturday. Late report submission is not accepted. You may not receive any grade for the labs you did not attend.
ES Lecture series: You are expected to attend the six presentations in the ES lecture series on the scheduled Thursdays 4:30-5:30 PM. The lectures will help you be aware of the trends of technologies and getting to know the speaker for your future job. Please bring the Attendance Form, fill up the date, name of the speaker and the title of the talk and ask the host of the lecture to sign it for you.
Quizzes, Exams: There will be drop quizzes at the beginning of the lab sessions. The midterm exam will be at least one hour, and the final exam two hours during the lab period. The exams may be practical, i.e., perform one of the experiments tests, and are intended for you to practice and learn the most out of the course and become polished electrical engineers.
Academic Honesty: You are responsible to behave ethically& honestly. Copying, cheating, forgery, and other unethical or dishonest actions are not tolerated. See SSU Policy on Cheating and Plagiarism.
