On successful completion of SFDV2005 students will be able to:
It is challenging to motivate students who mostly look at Computer Science from an application perspective to study computer organization and architecture concepts. We have developed a set of practical and theoretical assignments to encourage students to understand and appreciate computer organization and architecture concepts.
You are responsible for submitting assignments when scheduled by the instructor. Absence from lecture does not excuse you from any assignments made during the lecture period. If you miss a lecture/Lab. check with the instructor or another student to determine if an assignment was given during the missed lecture/Lab. You are expected to address the assignments individually. You can help on an assignment, but may not copy any part of another student’s work. Assignments found to be too much alike or copied will result in a ZERO grade for all parties involved. The instructor reserves the right to orally examine you on any assignment and modify the assignment grade accordingly. You are expected to take the exam on the scheduled date. If you must miss a scheduled exam, you are required to notify the instructor before hand and have a very good reason. Cheating of any kind will result in an F for the course. Sharing test information in any manner is cheating.
