Lectures are held every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, from 2 to 2:50 PM in Macmillan Hall 117.
CS 33 is taught by Professor Tom Doeppner (twd).
The course is intended primarily for computer science students and computer engineers, though it is open to anyone with adequate preparation interested in learning the topics covered in the course announcement below.. It fulfills a core requirement for the A.B. and Sc.B. tracks in computer science, and is required for the Computer Engineering concentration.
In order to take CS 33, you should have taken CS 15, CS 18 or CS 19 (or have Tom's permission). Familiarity with a C-like language (such as C++ or Java) will help you with this course. However, knowing C is not a prerequisite for the course.

From the Course Announcement: 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 multithreaded programming with POSIX threads. Students will learn the basics of how compilers work and will be introduced to the functions of operating systems.
