This paper outlines an implementation for a hands-on Local Area Network (LAN) management course in the undergraduate curriculum of a department of Information Systems. Three major problems are addressed: faculty preparation, resource allocation, and course design/logistics. 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 simultaneously for a single file server. A course outline and a sample practical exercise are given. This course has been successfully implemented and received a favorable student response.
