The principles of computer organisation and operating systems (OS) are the building blocks of modern computing. You will be introduced to fundamental concepts of OS and digital logic, with an emphasis on data representation, memory technology, and Input/Output (I/O) systems. You will examine how a computer operates at the machine level, i.e., OS and hardware cooperation, and explore hierarchy and organisation of memories, addressing techniques, internal processor structure and operation through symbolic assembly language examples.
