Engineers are constantly looked upon to integrate multiple technologies. Because of the growth of the Internet, the need for engineers to have a basic understanding of computer networks has become critical. Almost every role in engineering has become integrated with computers and networking. Data from many sources such as mechanical, chemical, and structural systems is being measured remotely. In addition, we often need to provide a remote control of these systems using networks. This convergence of technologies has helped to make the use of computers and computer networks a mature technology with the ability to be used to solve many types of engineering problems.
The purpose of
this course is to provide the engineer with a general introduction to LAN and
WAN technologies. This course is addressed to the engineer with a basic knowledge
of computers who needs to become familiar with computer networks.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
This course consists of the following course modules:
Module 1 - Computer Networking and Telecommunications
Module 2 - Definitions, Hardware, and Topologies
Module 4 - Extending to the WAN
Module 5 - Protocols in Networking
Module 6 - IP Addressing Scheme
Each module is in PDF format. You need to open or download those documents to study this course.
Once you finish studying the above course content you need to take a quiz to obtain the PDH credits.
