Syllabus mentioned in ERP[edit | edit source]
The same as above mentioned.
Concepts taught in class[edit | edit source]
Student Opinion[edit | edit source]
Good course which covers many network protocols and latest embedded protocols. For few of the protocols we will be using latest research papers and its an updated course of all the protocols. It was taught by Ayantika Chatterjee and Arnab Sarkar. I never felt that they are going fast or not in sync with us, they go at a right pace and helps us understand better.
How to Crack the Paper[edit | edit source]
Just following the slides and completing the assignments is more than enough. No specific text-book is there as it will make use of online sources and the paper will be set on what is taught in the class itself.
