Computer Organisation & Program Execution


Semester 1 2020

Hi 2020 student! Welcome to COMP2300, you’re a bit early—the course doesn’t start until February 2020!

If you want to see what the course is like or get started on some early reading, the lectures and labs from last year are online. If you just want to do some casual learning to get started with the course material, here’s a couple of links that are useful for this course!

See you in week 1!

Semester 1 2019

Welcome to ANU’s introductory computer architecture course. In this course you get to take a complex computer system (the STM32L476G discovery “disco” board) home from week 1. That might seem daunting (it sure looks complicated) and it’s true that there’s more stuff on this board than you can master in one semester. Still, you’ll learn a lot about CPUs (and how programs are organised and executed) by the end of the course—how exciting!

This site contains all the course content: the policies, lecture slides, lab content, and the deliverables (assignments, etc.) and other resources.

If you’ve got questions, there’s a course FAQ which might have the answers you’re looking for.

Contact the course convenor (Charles Martin) for more information.
