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.
