Course Overview

Computer Organisation is a fundamental course in computer science and engineering that focuses on understanding the internal structure and operation of a computer system. It explores the hardware components and their interactions that enable a computer to execute instructions and perform tasks.

Computer Organisation is important for an organisation for several reasons:
• Understanding System Architecture: Computer Organisation provides insights into the internal structure and components of a computer system. This knowledge helps organisations make informed decisions when selecting and configuring computer systems that align with their specific requirements. It allows them to understand the capabilities and limitations of the hardware, enabling better utilisation of resources.

• Efficient Resource Management: By understanding computer organisation, organisations can optimise the utilisation of hardware resources. This includes managing memory effectively, designing efficient algorithms, and utilising the available processing power efficiently. Proper resource management can lead to improved performance, reduced costs, and enhanced productivity.

• System Design and Development: Computer Organisation knowledge is crucial in designing and developing computer systems, whether it’s building custom hardware solutions or developing software that leverages the underlying hardware efficiently. It enables organisations to develop systems that meet their specific needs, ensuring compatibility, performance, and reliability.

• Performance Optimisation: Computer Organisation knowledge plays a vital role in optimising system performance. By understanding the hardware architecture, organisations can develop software that takes advantage of specific hardware features, such as parallelism, pipelining, and caching. This optimisation can result in faster execution times, improved response rates, and better overall system performance.

• Future Technology Trends: Computer Organisation provides a foundation for keeping up with evolving technologies and trends in computer systems. It enables organisations to understand and adapt to new hardware advancements, such as multicore processors, advanced memory architectures, and emerging paradigms like quantum computing. This knowledge helps organisations stay competitive and make informed decisions regarding hardware upgrades and investments.
