Course Objectives The goal of this course is to give basic knowledge of operating systems to a student who intends to be a computer or software engineer. It provides a comprehensive introduction to process management, memory management, data storage systems and i/o control. Thread programming is studied in detail together with laboratory practices.
Course Description The students who succeeded in this course;
  • will be able to evaluate the efficiency in using the resources of a computer,
  • will be able to evaluate the convenience in using the resources of a computer,
  • will be able to explain the mechanisms developed between different components for the purpose of overall efficient use of a computer,
  • will be able to discuss the techniques in developing systems programs,
  • will be able to classify the programs as systems and user programs.
Course Content Operating System Structures, Process Management, Memory Management, File Systems, Discs, I/O Systems
