Abstract: This teaching tip addresses the faculty preparation, course design, and resource allocation undertaken to teach an undergraduate course in telecommunications and data networking to business students with a concentration in Information Systems. There are special difficulties in designing such a course because of the hardware preparation involved and the assignment of supervisor rights to a large number of students. The course lectures are integrated with problem-solving oriented laboratory based assignments. The author believes that hands-on experience with networking hardware and software for the students is essential to grasp the data networking concepts.
