On the basis of
"Introduction to IT-Operations and Information Security" and "Mathematics for Computer Science"
Expected learning outcomes
Basics of computer networks
The topics covered could include, but are not limited, to:
- Data link and physical layer (e.g. Ethernet)
- Network layer (e.g. IP, ICMP, routing)
- Network addressing (e.g. IP addressing)
- Transport layer (e.g. TCP, UDP)
- Application layer (e.g. HTTP, SMTP, DNS)
- Switching (VLANs)
- Routing Concepts and protocols (e.g. RIP, OSPF, EIGRP)
- Access Control Lists (ACL)
- Network services (e.g. DHCP, NAT)
- LAN Redundancy (e.g. STP)
- Link Aggregation (e.g. EtherChannel)

Alphabetical Scale, A(best) – F (fail)
Evaluated by internal examiner, external examiner is used periodically (every five years, next time in 2017/2018)
Alternatively to the external grading an external supervisor can evaluate the course structure, course content and the content of the exams.
|Re-sit examiniation in August.|
Code D: No printed or hand-written support material is allowed. A specific basic calculator is allowed.

Replacement course for
It will be possible for students to take selected CCNA module exams corresponding to the course curriculum to get CISCO vouchers for later external CISCO certifications (not handled by NTNU). Please note that this arrangement is subject to CISCO’s certification policies and might change accordingly. Furthermore, the results of the module exams do not count with respect to this course’s grading.
Admission to a programme of study is required:
One-year study programme in Computer Science (ÅRINF)
Bachelor in IT Operations and Information Security (BITSEC)
