Weights (in %):
Course Outcome(s) is/are measurable or not: Yes / Yes (Partial) / No (Please choose).
If Yes, please suggest ways to measure:

(P1)(P2)(P3)(P5) as a group by teaching the elements of network, and the principle/mechanisms of designing a large networking system. The teaching includes lectures, tutorials, assignments, and exams.

(P8)(P10)(P11)(P13) as group by teaching on the impacts of large networking systems on top of which all web applications are constructed. This group is implicitly discussed in the course.
