Goals of the Lecture
 

By attending this course, students learn architecture and the components of modern computer systems. This knowledge is directly required for advanced courses on distributed systems and communication systems. As computers are vital components of most robots and complex process automation systems, a basic understanding of computer systems is necessary for most practical work in this area, like project groups and lab courses.
