MITx conducts online course on Computation Structures Part-2

Posted By:

Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MITx) is offering an online course on Computation Structures - Part 2: Computer Architecture. The interactive computer science course will enable you to learn the basic principles of computer architecture. 

About The Course:

Digital systems are at the heart of the information age in which we live, allowing us to store, communicate and manipulate information quickly and reliably.

This computer science course is a bottom-up exploration of the abstractions, principles, and techniques used in the design of digital and computer systems. If you have a rudimentary knowledge of electricity and some exposure to programming you can join the course.

Using your browser for design entry and simulation, you'll implement a 32-bit computer using our gate library and write assembly language programs to explore the hardware/software interface.

This is Part 2 of a 3-part program on digital systems.
