Additional information
Method of calculating the final grade:

Final grade will be issued after successful assessment of practical test (case studies: lab and project classes) as well as passing the exam. The final grade is weighted sum of lab class assessment (50%) and exam (50%).

Prerequisites and additional requirements:

Knowledge on binary and hexadecimal systems, the ability to configure interfaces IP addresses on computers with any OS, basic knowledge of English.
