In this course we will discuss the core concepts of computer
organization. We will examine concepts related to both
hardware (gates, memory, binary system, etc) and software
(operating systems, compilers, assemblers, etc.) and of
course their interface. We will introduce and use in the lab
assignments two important tools in this course: assembly
programming (we use MIPS) and hardware programming (we use

Final: 2017.08.03 (Thu) R 14:00-17:00 (YK ACW 006)
There will be eight lab assignments carrying 8*4=32% of the
total mark. They will be during the prescheduled labs (see
the Dates section). There will be two makeup labs, one for
the first four and another for the remaining four. We will
be using Prof. Roumani's Lab Handbook.
