Computer Architecture and Systems Plan of Work

Suggested courses for Computer Architecture and Systems

Computer architecture is the engineering of a computer system through the careful design of its organization, using innovative mechanisms and integrating software techniques, to achieve a set of performance goals.  Students will gain hands-on experience through projects within their coursework.
