Excellent course! It was really nice to have a high-level course, and I feel like this course makes a great substitute for the Computer Architecture course offered in my university.
The way of Professor is teaching is fabulous !!\n\nContent of the course is amazing.\n\nHe has planned the course in such a way that new students can also understand the concepts.

Awesome Course. Thanks to IITU to provide this course to learning program!!

This is a great course. I learned tremendously.
The only wish is that it is updated with the new materials and the new text book (H&P 6th, planned soon) in the near future.

Excelent classes, I learned a lot and I'm using it to design my processor using FPGA.
Thank you very much.

course is very good but why you didn't provide certificate?
by Eric L D•
prof mumbles, stammers, & stutters but content is legit

Before the first "real digital computer" was built, John von Neumann (a Hungarian-American mathematician) published his perception of a machine which would be capable of making computations based on instructions given by human users. Peopla later started calling those humans "programmers".
The stored computer concept basically describes a processing unit fetching program instructions from its memory; then decoding the instruction (figuring out what the instructions is; what operation(s) does it imply, etc.) and executing the instruction. Any data the executed instruction generates or modifies or uses is also to be stored in the same memory. In other words; data and program instructions can and should be located in the memory of a computer.
In modern computer terminology we call this memory "RAM"; initials which stand for "Random Access Memory". RAM is a volatile memory; that is, RAM needs electrical energy to retain its contents. If energy is cut, the contents of RAM will be cleared; therefore we use secondary storage equipment to store program instructions and data so that they can be reused. The main secondary storage equipment we use these days are the magnetic storage media; mainly floppy disks and disks (CD's are also very popular secondary storage media).

I have a slight background in computer Architecture, taking this course allowed me to have a refreshier. Espeically being able to download the videos and do it all on my own time.
by Phillip S•
Great course, but quite difficult. I recommend working through all of the problem sets. The video lectures are more important than the textbook readings.

Nice course helped to clear various concepts of computer architecture from an elementary level to advanced with swift flow in the teaching material.

This is the best Computer Architecture course available on Internet. The Exam material is really good.
by Jumayev X S•
Great course. I got a lot of what I needed in this course. The level of difficulty is also excellent.
by Ridwan U•
I have learnt a lots from his wonderful knowledge and experience. It is worth applying

Very Well-structured Computer Architecture course and content delivery was excellent.
by BHARATH K•
Absolutely Amazing course. Challenging questions on the mid-term and the finals.
by NOE B P•
This course is the best way to understand the computer architecture.
