CSE123 provides an introduction to the concepts, principles, and practice of computer communication networks with examples from existing architectures, protocols, and standards. Topics include layering and the OSI model; switching; local, metropolitan, and wide area networks; datagrams and virtual circuits; routing and congestion control; and internetworking (a.k.a. The Internet).

Prereqs: CSE 120 and programming experience with C for the projects.

Issues relating to the projects and homework assignments will be handled largely in the discussion section. The TAs will likely be far more accommodating to questions from those students who regularly attend discussion sections.

Collaboration Policy

All homework and programming assignments must be completed individually. You must write all solutions and code that you submit, excepting any code that was provided to you as part of the assignment. You may discuss the assignments with others, but you may not copy answers or code from another student or make your code available to others. Exams will be individual effort and closed book.

Each student is responsible for knowing and abiding by UCSD's policies on Integrity of Scholarship and the Jacobs School Student Honor Code. Any student violating UCSD's Academic Dishonesty or UCSD's Student Conduct policies will earn an 'F' in the course and will be reported to their college Dean for administrative processing. Committing acts that violate Student Conduct policies that result in course disruption are cause for suspension or dismissal from UCSD.

Charles Elkan's academic honesty guidelines developed for CSE 130 explicitly spell out many of your reponsibilities, and must be adhered to. If you have any questions, please ask.

Don't cheat. It's not worth it.
