CS 271 Networks and Systems (4)

Networks and systems form the boundary between abstractions firmly rooted in language and deeper questions in computing regarding the implementation of thinking machines at engineering and physical levels. This course will prepare computer scientists to reason at and across this abstraction boundary to more fully embrace the power of computation. Students will learn low level languages of C and assembly, use command line tools to study these languages, use features of the operating system including parallelism and networking, and learn how to make changes to operating systems.
