This course is designed to provide the student with some knowledge about the elements of the queueing systems and the most important performance measures to evaluate queueing models. The course covers some probability topics as an introduction to the queueing models such as: exponential distribution, Poisson process, birth-death processes and their properties. In addition, the course covers most of the Morkovian queueing models such as: single server queue, multi-server queue, finite capacity queues. The course covers briefly the general queues and the open Jackson networks.

Lectures of the course are thought using Power Point slides (in English). Slides of the lectures are available in my website. Therefore, every student must have the slides of the subject with hem during the lecture. Also, the subjects are presented in an interactive way so every student is required to participate during the lecture.
All students must attend the lectures. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of each lecture. Any student fail to attend 25% of the course will not be allowed to take the final exam according to the university policy.
The final grade in the course is calculated according to the following distribution:
- Midterm-I 20%
- Midterm-II 20%
- Final Exam 60%
Attendance, participation and quizzes are also counted toward the final grading as a bonus in the course. Each takes about 10 minutes. The quizzes dates will not be announced. Normally, a quiz covers the materials presented in the same day of the quiz.
