The module ''Computer Networks'' deals with the structure and functionality of computer networks. The aim of the module is to enable listeners to analyze and understand the behaviour of networks (including the Internet) in general terms. A special focus is on the problems and the functionality of network software. After visiting the module, the listeners should be able to develop their own network modules after additional training in the respective network environments. The students practice scientific working methods (recognizing, formulating, solving problems, training abstract ability) and train oral communication skills in the exercises by practicing free speech in front of an audience and during discussion.
None. The competences taught in the following modules are recommended: Object-oriented Programming, either Algorithms and Data Structures or Practical Informatics II: Data Structures and Algorithms for Pre-Service-Teachers, System Software and Computer Communication.
