CSCI 4415 - Real Time Embedded Systems

CSCI 4415 (formerly CS-190) is a George Washington University, Department of Computer Science course in real-time embedded systems. This course is taught as CSCI-4415 section 80 for undergraduate students and CSCI-6907 section 80 for graduate students. The purpose of this course is to engage computer science undergraduates and graduates with hardware and embedded systems. While Computer Science students get a strong conceptual overview of systems and hardware in various organization and architecture courses, many students have never experienced actually working with computer hardware. This course will focus on hands-on projects, through homework, labs and final projects involving both hardware and low-level software. This course will discuss the design issues in an embedded system and the technologies needed to support such systems, with the focus on the software aspects.

CSCI 4415 Syllabus

The purpose of this course is to engage computer science undergraduates and graduates with hardware and embedded systems. While CS students get a strong conceptual overview of systems and hardware in various organization and architecture courses, many students have never experienced actually working with hardware. This course will focus on hands-on projects (through homework, labs and final project) involving both hardware and low-level software. This course will discuss the design issues in an embedded system and the technologies needed to support such systems (with the focus on the software aspects). In addition, we will also cover a gamut of real-time embedded systems-related topics. The class can be taken for graduate and undergraduate credit, the work load being scaled appropriately.
