||Operating system is a crucial part of a computer system. The purpose of this course is to introduce the students to fundamental concepts and principles of computer operating systems. This course aims to provide students with knowledge on the internal structure and components of operating systems, resource management performed by operating systems, services delivered by operating systems, and real-time operating system issues.
||A student who completes the course successfully will Know the objectives and functions of operating systems Describe the logical structure of an operating system Identify the facilities provided by an operating system Know how operating systems perform the management of diverse computer resources Know about recent real-time operating system issues
||Computer and Operating System Principles, Processes and Threads, Mutual Exclusion and Synchronization, Deadlocks, Memory Management, Scheduling, Input/Output System, File Systems, Multiple Processor Systems, Security.
