Important information for Students

All students should fill out a student-specific symptom checker each day before coming to class Link


CS 270 presents a top-down introduction to computer architecture after students have completed an introduction to Java programming.

The concepts in this course will be reinforced through assignments in C, LC3 assembly language, and Logisim based circuit design.

The textbook covers this material in a bottom-up fashion so we will cover the chapters in a different order. See the Progress page for more information.

Graded activities will occur each week.


TA help hours: TBD
