|When Offered?||Every Year|
High-level computer architecture and systems programming. The course covers the organization of computer systems (in terms of storage units, caches, processors, and I/O controllers) and teaches students assembly-language programming and C-language programming. Extensive programming exercises introduce students to systems-level programming on Linux systems, as well as to multi-threaded programming with POSIX threads. Students will learn the basics of how compilers work and will be introduced to the functions of operating systems. Prerequisite: CSCI 0150, 0180, or 0190.
