PC Hardware and Operating Systems

Course Code: TECH 151

Academic Year: 2017-2018

This course is designed to provide students with sufficient knowledge of current microcomputer hardware and software content and configuration to begin diagnosing and solving simple hardware-related problems. In addition, this course will enable students to approach upgrading and maintaining a microcomputer from a more knowledgeable perspective. All aspects of a microcomputer system will be investigated, including enclosures, power, motherboards, storage devices, input/output devices, memory and open-source operating systems. However, because each of these areas is continuously/rapidly developing/changing, all topics will not be given equal coverage.
