Computer Systems and Networks (1007ICT)

This course introduces the underlying structures and mechanisms of modern computer systems and networks. All students enrolled in an ICT degree need to have an understanding of the basic architecture and operation of computer systems. This course provides an overview of the hardware, software and network technologies that define modern computer systems. The course aims to provide students with the basic knowledge of how the components that define a computer work together and by extension an appreciation of the capabilities and limitations of computer systems. This knowledge assists students in the application of computing technologies to solve real world problems. This course material builds a foundation for further study in the field of information technology, and is a suitable prerequisite for many ICT courses.
