RIPE NCC Academic Initiative at UOB

As a part of a joint initiative between RIPE NCC, the IEEE Computer Society Lebanon Chapter, AUB, UOB, the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Balamand hosted a delegation from #RIPE NCC, on March 22.

Following a meeting with faculty members, more than 120 students from different universities in the North attended a seminar on How the #Internet Works by RIPE NCC representatives.

The seminar was a detailed view of the networking operations of the internet, followed by a workshop on IPv6.

This event was an opportunity for students to get exposed to insights and practical experiences of the Internet operation.
