Teaching

courses taught

  • CSCI 5273 - Network Systems
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020 / Fall 2020
    Focuses on design and implementation of network programs and systems, including topics in network protocols, architectures, client-server computing, software-driven networking, and other contemporary network hardware-software system design and programming techniques. Familiarity with C and Unix is required. Recommended prerequisites: CSCI 4273 and CSCI 4573. Same as ECEN 5273.
  • CSCI 7000 - Current Topics in Computer Science
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020 / Fall 2020 / Spring 2021
    Covers research topics of current interest in computer science that do not fall into a standard subarea. May be repeated up to 8 total credit hours.
  • ECEN 5273 - Network Systems
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2020
    Focuses on design and implementation of network programs and systems, including topics in network protocols, architectures, client-server computing, software-driven networking, and other contemporary network hardware-software system design and programming techniques. Familiarity with C and Unix is required. Same as CSCI 5273.
  • TLEN 5460 - Corporate Internet Networking Laboratory
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019
    Provides direct experience with networking functions and equipment through experiments and demonstrations. Students learn the fundamental principles and techniques of voice and data switching and routing within an enterprise environment. Procedures require the use of actual commercial equipment (including Cisco, Juniper, and Arista) plus network services and observation using packet analyzers. Weekly experiments and exams are designed to reflect real-world networking scenarios and require an additional hours of lab work. Most lab exercises involve activities which require physical access to the hardware and cannot be done remotely. Students are expected to spend 6 hours per week in the lab. In addition to the lab time, students should also anticipate up to 6 additional hours of time for homework, reading, lab preparation and studying for exams. Recommended restriction: students are expected to know the OSI Model, principles of Ethernet Switching, IP Addressing and operation of protocols such as ARP, DHCP, DNS, STP, and SSH. Recommended prerequisite: CYBR 5010 or CSCI 4273.
  • TLEN 5462 - Datacenter Networks
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2018
    Covers design and configuration principles required to build highly scalable and highly redundant network solutions used by datacenters. Class makes use of commercial grade equipment to build network toplogies and services. Students will work in teams to build a virtualized cluster, load balance application traffic between multiple server blades, assure high availability in Ethernet and IP layers, and able to prioritize important services using QoS. This lab-based course requires an average of 6 hours per week where the students are physically present in the CU Network Engineering Lab. Most lab exercises involve activities which require physical access to the hardware and cannot be done remotely. In addition to the lab time, students should also anticipate up to 6 additional hours of time for homework, reading, lab preparation and studying for exams.
