Spring 2016 Course Descriptions
COMP 150-01 Rethinking the Internet Architecture
Today's Internet was designed several decades ago when the usage model was very different than what we find today. This course will revisit the design of the Internet, so it can better address today's challenges and exploit new available opportunities. Specific topics that will be covered include: supporting information centric applications (e.g., Facebook, YouTube, etc), mobility, security, and the emergence of the cloud and Internet of Things (IoT). These topics will be covered through reading and discussing recent research papers. The course will involve a semester long research project.
Prerequisite: COMP 112 or instructor permission
