This is an expansive and tough course that will look into processing and programming techniques covering all sorts of languages and coding paradigms.

The second year of the course focuses much more on the inner working of the computer and looks at operating system design and concepts. You will be expected to document all areas of your coursework. There are two theory exams at the end covering a wide array of concepts.
