  • CSCI 4593 - Computer Organization
    Primary Instructor - Spring 2018 / Spring 2019 / Spring 2020 / Spring 2021
    Studies computer design at the gate level. Discusses instruction set architecture design, arithmetic and logic unit design, control logic, memory design and caches, simple pipelining, I/O and peripheral devices. Briefly covers aspects of modern computer architecture, such as multicore processors and cache coherence for these. Degree credit not granted for this course and ECEN 3593.

  • ECEN 5593 - Advanced Computer Architecture
    Primary Instructor - Fall 2020
    Provides a broad-scope treatment of important concepts in the design and implementation of high-performance computer systems. Discusses important issues in the pipelining of a processor, out-of-order instruction issue and superscalar designs, design of cache memory systems for such systems, and architectural features required for multicore processor designs. Also studies current and historically important computer architectures. Recommended prerequisite: ECEN 4593. Same as CSCI 5593.
