Course Description

The infrastructures of operating systems and networks are the fundamental technologies that support enterprise information systems. Students in this course examine the components of computer systems, their underlying operating systems, and their data communications networks. They critically investigate the services these components provide and draw implications for the large-scale enterprise. Students sharpen communication and critical-thinking skills through weekly discussions on related topics, such as modularity, abstraction, threading, virtual memory, Internet protocol, atomicity, and concurrency control.
