Department Cooperations


The increasing importance of computer networks and the emergence of wider application areas for networking and communication nowadays require more emphasis on the education of computer networks and related technologies. This development has encouraged us, as the Department of Computer Engineering, to provide theoretical and practical training in computer networking technologies in collaboration with Cisco Co. This training enables undergraduate and graduate students to explore the latest developments in our Cisco laboratories. This course also covers the topics of the application of multi-layer network protocols from theory to implementation. Two well-equipped Cisco laboratories are available to students interested in this field.
