Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


An introductory course in local area networks (LANs) for Penn State University at DuBois Campus has been designed. This course is tailored for first and second-year electrical and computer engineering students as well as for students in programs such as electrical engineering technology, management information systems, and business administration. Course topics include computer hardware basics, the hardware compatibility list, network cards and protocols, media, network operating system characteristics and network administration. The course is hands-on oriented with a one-hour lecture two-hour lab per week. The course has been very successful and it has been adapted for a five-day continuing education course.
