Subject: Systems and Networks Management
Number of ECTS:
1 - The Network and Systems Management course provides students with knowledge about the main concepts of systems and networks' management, the main existing management architectures and the main types of management tools and techniques.
2 - Os alunos também adquirem conhecimentos sobre os principais problemas que se colocam a um gestor de sistemas informáticos, abrangendo, entre outros, aspectos de administração de redes e sistemas, interligação e funcionamento em rede, configuração de redes, protecção e segurança

Assesssment methods and criteria:
Classification Type: Quantitativa (0-20)
Theoretical classes are expository, based on the presentation of slides. Practical classes take place in the network laboratory, where students carry out network configuration and management work, using, for the most part of the classes, a network simulator. The evaluation consists of 2 tests and 2 practical projects. The tests aim to assess theoretical and theoretical-practical knowledge. In this way, students can, throughout the semester, evaluate their performance and change strategies if necessary. The projects, carried out individually or in groups, allow students to put into practice and consolidate the knowledge acquired in theoretical and practical classes, as well as to develop autonomous work and research skills. For each project, students have to prepare a report and make a presentation. The tests have a weight of 60% of the final grade (minimum of 8.0 on average); projects have a weight of 40% of the final grade (minimum of 8.0 on average).
