This Course Provides an established, convenient, and efficient interface between user programs and the bare hardware of the computer on which they run. It is responsible for sharing resources (e.g., disks, networks, and processors), providing common services needed by many different programs (e.g., file service, the ability to start or stop processes, and access to the printer), and protecting individual programs from interfering with one another.
An introductrory course in computer science or comparable experience.

The Objective of this course is to enable understudies to understand and examine the important problems in operating system design and implementation.
This is a short term course and the course will start with a brief historical perspective of the evolution of operating systems over the last fifty years and then cover the major components of most operating systems. This discussion will cover the tradeoffs that can be made between performance and functionality during the design and implementation of an operating system. Particular emphasis will be given to three major OS subsystems: process management (processes, threads, CPU scheduling, synchronization, and deadlock), memory management (segmentation, paging, swapping), and file systems; and on operating system support for distributed systems.
