COMP 264: Introduction to Computer Systems

Credit hours



COMP 170 or COMP 215


This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of the hierarchy of abstractions and implementations that comprise a modern computer system. The course is particularly geared towards topics of interest to a programmer, i.e., topics that affect the performance, correctness, or utility of user-level programs. Since this investigation is best carried out using the C programming language, the course will include some instruction in C for programming familiar with Java.
