This class was tough.
This graduate Computer architecture course is best in terms of Content, Lecturer, and Projects. We were given Sparc V8 processor to simulate using SystemVerilog. It was a semester long project. The course covers state-of-the-art topics like out-of-order superscalar processors and microarchitecture.
Processor Design, Computer microarchitecture including interactions among caches, processorts, drams, bus, etc.

Advice for students:
This is not an easy course. Most of the grade is dependent on a semester-long project. So, be prepared to work throughout the semester. I would highly recommend Prof. Nima.
