Teaching Network Design - efforts, observation, and (non-)surprises


Archway 2 - 1:00 pm, Friday 14 October


Teaching mathematics to engineering-oriented students has long been considered necessary, and important.

In the TELE programme, the room for maths preparation is there, albeit limited - we also need to cater for programmng and some Physics. However, the real challenge we have to deal with is offering TELE courses to COSC and INFO students.

In this talk I'll take a look at the TELE curriculum changes over the years, share my experience in teaching the TELE papers, especially TELE302 (Network Design) in light of queueing theory and its applications, and compare the performance of INFO and TELE students. I'll then try to show some amusing observations, identify a couple of problems, and discuss potential solutions or, shall we say, workarounds.

I think I'll bring you some laughter :-)
