Nowadays, communication networks have become the essential infrastructure for our daily life.
The communication networks, such as the internet consist of various component technologies.
This course focuses on understanding the overview and the background mathematical theories of each component that configures the communication network.
1. General understanding of the communication networking that is the essential knowledge for managing the local area network in the future carrier.
2. The understanding of the mathematical theories such as the signal modulation and the source coding theorem
Internet protocol, Networking theory, Communication theory, Source coding theorem, Cryptographic theory

To enhance effective learning, students are encouraged to spend approximately 100 minutes preparing for class and another 100 minutes reviewing class content afterwards (including assignments) for each class.
They should do so by referring to textbooks and other course material.
Lecture materials are distributed from the OCW-i.
