Summary

 

Advanced Computer Architecture - ELEC97006

Role

Course Leader

Compilers - CO221

Aims

In this module you will have an opportunity to:

  • appreciate how a compiler for a high-level programming language works
  • understand how programming language design is influenced by compiler structure and how computer architecture is influenced by the needs of compiled programs
  • develop the technical skills needed for constructing practical compiler components, such as parsers, interpreters, semantic analysers, code generators and code optimisers   

Role

Course Leader

Advanced Computer Architecture - CO332

Aims

Computer architecture concerns the design of general-purpose and special-purpose processors, and of parallel computer systems for applications ranging from embedded robotics through mobile handsets to datacentres and supercomputers. 

Through this module you will:

  • develop a thorough understanding of high-performance and energy-efficient computer architecture
  • learn principles and techniques for evaluating architectural proposals
  • explore how knowledge of computer architecture informs software performance engineering
  • gain a deep understanding of topical trends in advanced computer architecture, compiler design, operating systems and parallel processing
