This course introduces the student to the principles and basis of computer networks and communications. The course is centered in the TCP/ IP protocol and its different communication layers following a top-down approach with examples and practice sessions. At the end of the course the students will understand the basics of the most used communication protocol in the internet, its architecture and security aspects.

Subject planning could be modified due unforeseen circumstances (group performance, availability of resources, changes to academic calendar etc.) and should not, therefore, be considered to be definitive.
TEACHING AND LEARNING METHODOLOGIES AND ACTIVITIES:
Teaching and learning methodologies and activities applied:
Magistral lectures will be used to explain the different aspects of the subject and encouraged to be highly dynamic and interactive with visual examples. Small exercises will be solved during class in order to consolidate the concepts.
Magistral lectures schedule will be altered with webinars and laboratory sessions where the students consolidate and practice the subject concepts mixing problem-based and project-based learning approaches. Additionally, practical groupwork sessions are scheduled where the students will put in practice the concepts of the subject using a project-based learning approach.
The subject requires a high effort from the student, and it is important to follow the concepts and exercises during the presential lectures. Additionally, the students will have via PDU many proposed exercises by the teacher with small tasks and challenges for autonomous learning. As a matter of that, the lecturer will be available to students during the tutorial schedule to help them in all matters concerning the course.
