Operating systems are pervasive. They are found in our desktop and laptop computers, our cell phones and PDAs, our cars and washing machines. The operating system is responsible for managing the resources of these devices in a manner that efficiently supports applications while hiding the details of the different technology.

This course examines fundamental operating system concepts such as resource management and supporting concurrency. Examples used in the course are drawn from a range of modern operating systems, and coursework provides significant practical experience in the design and implementation of operating systems.
