CE/CZ3004 Multidisciplinary Design Project (MDP)

MDP is a group-based design and development project undertaken by a mixed group of students
comprising of undergraduates from the CE and CS programmes. The project is practical-oriented and multi-disciplinary in nature, requiring system level integration of sub-systems developed by differentteam members. Topics covered will include Microprocessors, Signals and Interfaces, Sensors and Communication, Software engineering, Data structures and Algorithms, Open-source frameworks.

CE9002 How Computers Work

Hardware Organization: A brief overview of the history of computers. Parts of a modern computer system: CPU, memory, input/output. CPU: classification, functional units, instruction set, examples of microprocessors. Types of memory. Serial communication and parallel connections.

Software Organization: introduction to operating systems. File system – structure and organization for hard disks and CD ROM. Program development – the role of compilers, assemblers, linkers, loaders, programming environments.

Computer Networking: Internet Basics – IP and DNS addressing, domains and sub domains, traffic routing through routers and gateways. Internet Services: the World Wide Web and HTTP, E-mail, FTP, Internet Relay Chat, search engines.

ES6126 Algorithms to Architectures

This course will introduce students to the design techniques, methodologies and tools for efficient partitioning and mapping of algorithms onto parallel architectures and onto dedicated hardware. Topics covered will include: PRAM model, MPI, CUDA, hardware/software partitioning, concurrency issues, system-level behavior, global time vs. self-timing, shared state (memory) vs. point-to-point communications, finite vs. unbounded state, and function vs. architecture. System constraints including processing time, size, and cost and space-time tradeoffs in hardware and software will be discussed as well fundamental modeling considerations.
