Objectives and Outcome

Welcome to the VEC-Cisco Networking Academy program!

This is the first of four courses at our best B.Tech college in Telangana designed to provide classroom and laboratory experience in current and emerging networking technology and to help prepare for certification as a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA). This curriculum presents a comprehensive overview of networking; from fundamentals to advanced applications and services to students of our best Engg college. It is based on the top-down approach to networking that is popular in many top engineering colleges in Telangana & universities. The course emphasizes the concepts and skills required to design networks while providing opportunities for practical application and hands-on experience by teaching students how to install, operate, and maintain networks. The curriculum prepares students for the demands of the workplace and motivates them to continue their education and learning. The program recognizes multiple learning styles of students with Web-based, multimedia content; online assessment and evaluation throughout the course; hands-on labs; and instructor training and support. Upon completion, students of our best engineering college in Warangal will have the opportunity to take a certification exam.


 This course introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of  the  Internet  and  other  computer  networks.  It  uses  the  OSI  and TCP layered models to examine the nature and roles of protocols and services      at the application, network, data link, and physical layers. The principles and structure of IP addressing and fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations are  introduced  to  provide  a  foundation  for  the  curriculum.  Labs use a “model Internet” to allow students to analyze real data without affecting production networks. Packet Tracer (PT) activities help


VEC-CISCO Networking Academy Objectives and Outcome

students  analyze  protocol  and  network  operation  and  build  small  networks  in   a  simulated  environment.   At  the  end  of  the  course,   students  build  simple  LAN topologies by applying basic principles of cabling; performing basic configurations of network devices, including routers and switches;  and  implementing IP addressing schemes.


By the end of the course, students will achieve the following objectives:

Given a LAN/WAN configuration scenario, students will be able to:

  1. Describe the basic concepts of how data networks and the Internet support business communications and everyday
