- The knowledge of low-level programming in C is expected at the level PB071.
- Course Enrolment Limitations
- The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
- fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
- there are 61 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
- Course objectives
- The goal of this course is to introduce to students the principles of design and implementation of parallel systems and get them acquainted with the programmer's means for their development.
- Learning outcomes
- On successful completion, students should understand the principles of design and implementation of parallel algorithms and should have limited experience with programmer's means for their development. In particular, students should be able to design and implement their own parallel applications, they should know how to use selected libraries supporting the development of parallel applications, and should be able to explain what is behind the API calls to such libraries.
