Summer of Networking is now for academic credit!

Update on Indiana University’s summer of Networking Program for 2015

The 2015 Summer of Networking is a hands-on program focused on innovative network technology in the context of current problems and solutions in data centers, large enterprises and wide-area networks. The course content features a mix of network fundamentals and recent trends in network technology, with an emphasis on Software Defined Networks. No prior network experience is required.

The Summer of Networking program will be offered as a for-credit course through the Indiana University School of Informatics and Computing in Bloomington, Indiana. The courses will be held June 22, 2015 – July 31, 2015, during the second six week summer session. Individuals who are not currently IU students can enroll in the class as a non-degree-seeking student (see links below).

If you are already an IU student, you may register for these classes as you would for any other summer session class. If you are not currently an IU student, you may register for these classes as either a degree seeking or non-degree seeking student.

Testimonials from the pilot NSF Internship program. 

"You have all the gear. You have all the tools. You can see it in practice. If you want to try something, you have servers that run VMs and you can set up whatever environment you want to set up. And you can try any configuration you want to try. It’s really cool.”
