Course Code and Name: SEEM3460 Computer Processing Systems Concepts
Course Objectives:

This course will discuss how computer works. It covers a brief introduction on computer architecture and instruction set design. Then it discusses operating system topics such as process and memory management. The Unix utilities, program development, and shell programming will be presented in detail. A brief introduction on object-oriented principle and C++ are also covered. This course requires a number of laboratory workshop and programming assignments.
Course Outcomes:

1. Able to understand how computer works

2. Able to understand the basic principle of operating systems

3. Able to design and develop computer programs to solve problems
