Arthur C. Clarke wrote, Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.
Do computers seem like magic to you? Would you like to understand how they really work?
Introduction to Computer Engineering (CS/ECE 252) is a two-credit course that surveys the basics of computer hardware and low-level software. You will learn, for example:
CS/ECE 252 is available to all students at UW and is especially encouraged for freshman considering majors in computer sciences or engineering. Nevertheless, some computer programming experience (in any language) is helpful. Thus, students without programming experience may wish to first take CS 302 (Introduction to Programming).
Prof. Karu Sankaralingam will teach CS/ECE 252 Sections 1 and 2 with approximately thirty lectures scheduled Monday, Wednesday, and Friday 9:55-10:45 AM and 11:00-11:50 AM, respectively, in 1221 CS.
The required text is:
Yale N. Patt and Sanjay J. Patel,
Catalog Description 2 cr. Logic components built with transistors, rudimentary Boolean algebra, basic combinational logic design, basic synchronous sequential logic design, basic computer organization and design, introductory machine-and assembly-language programming.
CS/ECE 252 is required for majors in Computer Engineering and Computer Sciences and is a prerequisite to both CS/ECE 352 (Digital System Fundamentals and CS/ECE 354 (Machine Organization and Programming).
