AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

The course provides the basic knowledge of computer science. It describes the representation of the information and an overview of computers and data networks, with particular reference to Internet and the Web. 

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

The students should learn basic elements of computer science, and understand the role of information technology and the variety of its application areas in the present society. The practical goal is to assure that all the students have basic skills for using personal computer and software environment in their studies and programming fundamentals. The course gives the basic knowledge after which students should be able to practice and learn more about the systems independently and eventually on other courses.

TEACHING METHODS

The course is articulated in theoretical lessons. The lectures deal the part related to the architecture and operation of the computer and the Internet;

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

The course relates to the principal topics of the IT area: application of computers, structure (CPU, I/O, memory), instructions, programming code, data structures; from assembler to high level languages;

Compilers, Operating systems, commercial programs and user developed programs. Logical requirements, logical functions, 2 level (and-or) function modeling. Data communication, serial and parallel, local and geographical networks. Relation between band and speed. Analogic and digital channels.

Networks, protocols, protocol layering; IP, UDP, TCP, reliability, flow control, error detection and security (RSA example); wireless networks; multimedia networking; network security and security management. Architectures and Internet in the future.
