- Course objectives
- The subject gives a high-level overview of operating systems and their architectures. Students will learn about the basic components that make up an operating system and how they fit together. Students should also gain a basic understanding of design considerations and internal working of the individual components. Finally, the subject will cover services that the OS provides to user-level programs and to users directly.
- Learning outcomes
- By the end of the course, the student should be able to:
- name and describe what makes up an operating system
- explain how the individual components work
- use operating system services both as a user and a programmer
- describe how resource sharing works: memory, cpu, etc.
