MN 231S-301 Operating Systems Applications
MN 231S-301_SPI_10: Course Alias: MN231Semail@example.com
Operating Systems Applications is intended to be an introduction to operating systems. The emphasis is on desktop and workstation operating systems currently in use in the workplace: DOS, Windows, Mac OS, and UNIX. The course will cover the common characteristics and general structure of operating systems, as well as their installation, upgrade, and maintenance. The subject will be introduced through reading, discussion, and exercises. Students will have the opportunity to explore the topic from their own perspectives and with their own goals in mind: bringing specific operating system issues/questions to class will be encouraged. In general, the course is neither an introduction to computer applications nor an introduction to computer science. It is an introduction to operating systems and, as such, it will focus on the programs and processes that create and support the computing environment. Prerequisite: MN 111S Introduction to Computers and Programming or MN 210S Computer Applications.
