Readings in network computing (6 points)
Leader: S Krishnaswamy
Synopsis: A literature search on a selected topic of current interest in network computing culminating in a written review. The topic is researched in depth, and a literature survey and seminar paper are prepared. Students also read and discuss a series of research papers or extracts from other research areas. In the course of these activities, they become familiar with presentation and publication standards, including on-line publication. Access to the university's computer systems through an Internet service provider is compulsory for distance education students. All topics must be approved by the supervisor and course leader prior to its commencement.
Assessment: The student will be assessed by the appointed supervisor. Assessed material resulting from the subject will consist of: the proposal and plan; an extensive literature review and seminar paper; an oral presentation. The assessed material must be commensurate with other 6 point graduate level work. As an indication the literature review would typically result in a report of at least 4,500 words.
Corequisites: Depending on the topic area, and the prior knowledge and skills of the student, the supervisor or course coordinator may require one or more graduate subjects to be completed prior to commencing, or to be studied concurrently. These subjects would be taken as part of the course structure, and would be counted towards the points requirement of the course. Prohibition: Another reading unit
