Recommended Previous Knowledge:
- Fundamental stochastics
- Basic understanding of computer networks and/or communication technologies is beneficial
Students are able to describe the principles and structures of communication networks in detail. They can explain the formal description methods of communication networks and their protocols. They are able to explain how current and complex communication networks work and describe the current research in these examples.
Students are able to evaluate the performance of communication networks using the learned methods. They are able to work out problems themselves and apply the learned methods. They can apply what they have learned autonomously on further and new communication networks.
Students are able to define tasks themselves in small teams and solve these problems together using the learned methods. They can present the obtained results. They are able to discuss and critically analyse the solutions.
Students are able to obtain the necessary expert knowledge for understanding the functionality and performance capabilities of new communication networks independently.

Course: Analysis and Structure of Communication Networks (Lecture)
- Skript des Instituts für Kommunikationsnetze
- Tannenbaum, Computernetzwerke, Pearson-Studium
Further literature is announced at the beginning of the lecture.
Course: Communication Networks Excercise (Project-/problem-based Learning)
Part of the content of the lecture Communication Networks are reflected in computing tasks in groups, others are motivated and addressed in the form of a PBL exercise.
- announced during lecture
Course: Selected Topics of Communication Networks (Project-/problem-based Learning)
Example networks selected by the students will be researched on in a PBL course by the students in groups and will be presented in a poster session at the end of the term.
