Description/Outcomes The course is an introduction to network programming using the application programming interface known as sockets. In addition, several design alternatives for client/server applications will be presented along with tradeoffs. Upon successful completion of the course, the student should be able to develop network-aware applications that involve unicast and multicast communications from the grounds up. Hands-on experience will be gained through several programming assignments, which require knowledge of the C and/or Java programming language.
