Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The goal of the subject Computer Systems is teach students to think in computer language, design a solve particular algorithms in programming language. Second goal is provide to students knowledge about computer hardware from area of networks components and meet the students with design of network, subnetting and routing protocols.

Teaching methods



The subject Computer Systems is a basic subject shaping the profile of a graduate in the field of Automation and Control. Its aim is to familiarize students with the basics of programming computer and microprocessor techniques and computer systems. Exercises take place in a computer classroom with Visual Studio .NET environment and Cisco Packet Tracer Software.

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

Students work out a semestral project (25p) in which they solve a practically assigned task in C language. During the semester they are tested by a practical test (25p) and at the end of the semester by a credit test in the area of programming in C language and theoretical knowledge in the area of hardware(50p).
