TDDC87 Introduction to IT infrastructures
- Basic knowledge about software and hardware aspects of IT-infrastructure are discussed and analyzed during this course.
- The general aim of the course is to get insights about the infrastructure of IT; Computer architecture, Operating systems and Computer networks.
After completing this course the students should be able to perform analysis of IT-infrastructure and its relationship with markets aspects, existing standards systems and budgets constrains.
- The course consists of a series of lectures that covers basic terminology and specific concepts.
- The students also perform a short project in which they investigate the infrastructure of an IT-based artefact and compare it with other current standards systems.
- The results of the project are presented in a final seminary .
- The interaction between workgroups during the final seminary form central parts of the course.
- Lectures covers mainly three areas:
- Computer architecture,
- Operating systems, and
- Computer networks and its development during the last years.
- Short project as main examination issue.
