CENG 567/465 is
a graduate and also an advanced undergraduate
course. The basic requirements for the course: CENG
362 Computer Networks and CENG 102 Computer Programming (Java programming).
The graduate students have more paper readings, discussions and presentations in this course. Their project also should be more difficult than undergrads. That is the amount of work and quality is expected to exceed that of undergraduate students. The grading criteria for graduates and undergraduates will also be different.

Attendance, Discussion and Contribution
Lectures: Theoretical foundations and background.
Attendance, Discussion and Contribution: Attendance is important to learn the topics in a timely manner. It will be forced by taking attendance and students who are absent over 30% of the lectures automatically fail the course. A significant portion of the class time will be spent on mini-projects, developing system designs and discussing the readings in class. Your contribution to this, through participation and finding interesting readings, is part of your grade for the course.
Homework Assignments: There will be homework in every 2 or 3 weeks. The purpose of the homework is to give you a chance to exercise the knowledge gained from the recent class material.
Project: The project is very important for a course of this kind.
Midterm Exam: There will be one midterm exam that will be given around the mid of the semester.
Final Exam: There will be one final exam that will be given during final exams period of the semester.
We will be very careful in grading the projects, homeworks, exams so that everybody gets the grade that he/she deserves. Copying will not be tolerated and will be checked and punished rigorously.
The Fatih University has a very strict policy on academic dishonesty. All work on homeworks and examinations must be strictly individual. Violations of this policy will result in an F grade for the class and may result in suspension/expulsion from the university.
