    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class very highly; it is both interesting and can be very fun if you have a good group for your final project.

    Course highlights:

    I learned how processors work and about the different kinds of processors. We did most of our early material on MIPS, but we do learn how other assembly languages work and are expected to write our own.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    The class is hard unless you put forth effort in your project early on. If you stress test your ideas for the project very heavily, it comes together easily at the end. Don't wait until the last minute. The professors will be busy, and so will you.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Not only is this class required for CS, SE, and CPE majors, it bridges the gap between what is happening when you write a program in C and the physical transistors on a circuit board. Micah as a professor is entertaining, easy to learn from, and spends time teaching the more difficult concepts in greater detail.

    Course highlights:

    I learned what happens when I compile a computer program and put it onto a circuit board. This was, to date, the most interesting class I have taken because I finally felt as though I understood the basic concepts of everything from a high level language to a network of transistors and wires. The best part of the class was the project, where we designed a processor from scratch and demonstrated it to the class.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    This is a tough class if you slack off on the project; start working with your group early, and get help when you need it. It is much easier to correct a problem during week 1 of the project than week 7, so if you encounter a potential problem early, don't ignore it. Other than that, have fun with it!
