Course Descriptions

CSCI 2750 Introduction to CISCO Networks (A)

3 credits
CSCI 2750 introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. The principles and structure of IP addressing and the fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are introduced to provide a foundation for the curriculum. By the end of the course, students will be able to build simple LANs, perform basic configurations for routers and switches, and implement IP addressing schemes. This is a 1st term course.
Lecture: 2 hours - Lab: 3 hours
Lab fee: $2.00

CSCI 2752 CISCO Routing and Switching Essentials P (SP)

3 credits
CSCI 2752 describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a small network. Students learn how to configure a router and a switch for basic functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with RIPv1, RIPv2, single-area and multi-area OSPF, virtual LANs, and inter-VLAN routing in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks.
Lecture: 2 hours - Lab: 3 hours
Prerequisite: CSCI 2750
Lab fee: $20.00

CSCI 2754 Scaling CISCO Networks (A)

3 credits
CSCI 2754 describes the architecture, components, and operations of routers and switches in a large and complex network. Students learn how to configure routers and switches for advanced functionality. By the end of this course, students will be able to configure and troubleshoot routers and switches and resolve common issues with OSPF, EIGRP, STP, and VTP in both IPv4 and IPv6 networks. Students will also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement DHCP and DNS operations in a network.
Lecture: 2 hours - Lab: 3 hours
Prerequisite: CSCI 2752
Lab fee: $20.00

CSCI 2756 Connecting CISCO Networks (A)

3 credits
CSCI 2756 discusses the WAN technologies and network services required by converged applications in a complex network. The course enables students to understand the selection criteria of network devices and WAN technologies to meet network requirements. Students learn how to configure and troubleshoot network devices and resolve common issues with data link protocols. Students also develop the knowledge and skills needed to implement IPSec and virtual private network (VPN) operations in a complex network.
