Course objectives
The aim of the subject is to give an introductory overview of operating systems and computer networks. At the end of the course students will be able to understand basic principles of operating systems, their structure and functionality. Students will also understand basics of the computer networks. Seminars will allow students to practice the theoretical principles in real world situations.
Learning outcomes
At the end of the course the student understands:
- operating systems architectures;
- processes and threads management;
- planning activities processor;
- synchronization of processes;
- storage virtualization;
- control of inputs and outputs;
- network architecture, OSI model;
- data transmission;
- media access;
- quality of service in network environment.
