|Subject Overview:||The aim of this subject is to provide students with the state of the art knowledge and techniques (operational research and telegraffic engineering) in communication network design. the objective is to use this knowledge in optimal dimensioning, design, and operation of multimedia networks. |
This subject will include:
This subject will address some advance studies in optimisation theory (linear programming, Simplex algorithm, lagrangian realisation techniques, etc.) and their application in network design problems.
The topic, also, will include a practical network design project using Linear Programming or other optimisation techniques.
On completion of this subject, the students should have developed some basic skills and knowledge in the intersection of operating research and telegraffic engineering. the main emphasis would be to teach students the art of mathematical modelling and problem solving applicable to some challenging problems in multimedia network design. Some basic objectives are itemised below:
|Assessment:||A mid-term exam of 20%, project ad presentation 30%, and a final exam of 50%. this final exam is a hurdle. A student must pass the exam to pass the subject.|
