Department of Computer Communications
The Department conducts research and teaching in the broad area of computer networking and information systems. Our activities range from basic research and contribution to the foundations of computer communications to participation in engineering projects in cooperation with local institutions and IT industry.
Example research topics include:
- Design and performance analysis of wired and wireless LAN, MAN, and WAN computer networks,
- Computer network security with emphasis on wireless communication systems,
- Analysis and design of survivable multilayer networks,
- Quality of service evaluation in multiservice IP networks,
- Design and evaluation of e-learning systems and tools,
- Analysis and design of distributed communication mechanisms in noncooperative environments.
The subject matter of our teaching activities includes information theory, probability and statistics, stochastic modeling, and a wide scope of computer networking technology, covering architecture, performance, management, and design. The Department runs a number of courses in these areas and is responsible for the Computer Networks specialization within the Informatics study line.
