RE: 502, WA3, Dike


The purpose of EVOC 502 WA3 was to prepare a proposal for a course budget for a course I teach in Basic Computer Networking. The following six criteria were specified:
  1. Comply with all of the General Criteria for Written Assignments.

2. Provide a brief narrative description of the course (similar to course descriptions prepared for the Course and Unit Plan Assignment from the EVOC 501 course) that indicates what the course is all about and the time frame for course delivery.

3. List all of the expenses that would be incurred to run the course for one complete term. All items should be clearly identified. List items under separate categories such as facilities, equipment, materials, faculty, staff support and special activities.

4. Make realistic estimates of the actual expenses based on information that reflects existing circumstances and resources.

5. Indicate how much money the course is likely to generate (ADA or other institutional standard) on the basis of projected enrollment.

6. Limit the length of the budget document to not more than two or three pages following the Fred Fudrucker format (see below) or submit an actual budget on forms required by an actual educational institution.


The following sources of information were used relative to this assignment:
1. Dike, Victor E. - From my own professional experience.

2. Grant Joint Union Adult/Vocational Education Department.

I believe that the attached report meets all six of above listed criteria and respectfully request full credit: one point for meeting each of the above listed criteria.

RE: WA3 Budget Proposal for Basic Computer Networking Course


Basic Computer Networking course covers basic network management principles, practices and technologies for managing networks, systems, applications and services. Review of the latest computer network technologies, such as ATM, Gigabit, Ethernet and FiberOptic connections. It covers LAN basics, including how to implement LAN solutions such as FDDI, Fiber Channel and Gigabit Ethernet and WAN technology, such as Switched Multi-Megabit Data Service and Frame Relay. Also covers integrated high-performance router and switch technologies.

This is a 180-hour course that meets for 2.5 hours, twice a week for 36 weeks. Of that time, 90 hours are spent in the classroom and 90 hours in the lab. Maximum enrollment is 30 students.

EXPENSES (Maximum Enrollment of 30 Students)

Instructor's Salary: ($30/hr for 180 hrs.)


Classroom Facility Expense: ($10/hr for 180 hrs.)


Equipment Required:


Materials Expense:


Administrative Expense: ($300/hr for 4hrs.)


Total Expenses:


INCOME (Calculated for each Student)

$118.3 x 4.63 (ADA index =18*180* 0.0077/5.25)


Activity Fee: ($15 per student)



Total Income Per Student:


With total expenses of $10,000 and income of $563 per student we will nearly break even with an enrollment of 20 students. And with a maximum enrollment of 30 students we would realize $5,000 in profit.
