Offer 1 with catalog number 4019139ENR for all students in the 2nd semester at a (E) Master - advanced level.
The lecture offers the students a background needed for the management and deployment of “The Internet of Things”. It introduces several aspects of network management such as performance, configuration and security management. Those aspects will be applied on a Wireless Sensor Network example.
In the practical exercise sessions students solve problems under supervision. The selected problems are a direct application of knowledge and concepts gained in the lectures.
During the lab sessions students set up a wireless sensor network and/or evaluate the performance of certain subparts of it.
Description tutoring: after class, by appointment or via e-mail.

The final grade is composed based on the following categories:
Other Exam determines 100% of the final mark.
Within the Other Exam category, the following assignments need to be completed:
Voor studenten Industriële Wetenschappen: de student heeft het recht het examen in het Nederlands af te leggen.
For students Industrial Sciences: the student has the right to take the exam in Dutch.
Een ongewettigde afwezigheid van meer dan 25 % op de oefeningensessies geeft aanleiding tot een weigering tot deelname aan het oefeningenexamen en geeft aanleiding tot een afwezigheidsscore voor het betreffende examen. De sanctie wordt overgedragen naar tweede zittijd.
An illegitimate absence of more than 25 % for the practical exercise sessions leads to a refusal to participate in the practical exercises exam. This leads to an absent quotation for the related exam. The sanctions taken in the first exam session are transferred to the second exam session.
This offer is part of the following study plans:
