Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to understand the fundamentals of computer engineering. This includes understanding and applying the topics described in the content of the course. In addition, students understand the essential relationships between these topics and, therefore, have the necessary background knowledge

  • to describe and, in a limited context, to implement the structure, and the functionality of processors and computer systems,
  • to contrast, evaluate, and select different approaches, and
  • to construct drafts of digital systems.

Subject of course

Fundamentals of:

  • Representation of numbers in computers
  • Coding and information theory
  • Boolean algebra and circuits
  • KV-diagrams and Binary Decision Diagrams
  • Moore and Mealy machines
  • Digital circuits
  • Combinational logic
  • Storage elements and memory
  • Synthesis and analysis of sequential logic
  • Processors: instruction sets, pipelining, caching
  • Parallelism and memory hierarchies

Teaching methods

Learning activities comprise lectures, assignments in large and small groups, as well as three written exams (+one make-up test).

Because of COVID-19 this can be adaped.

Mode of examination

Additional information

Preliminary meeting: Tuesday, Oct. 5th 2021, 10am (c.t.), room GM1 (Audi Max) and via Live-Stream (link: see TUWEL)

Lectures are on Tuesday, 10am-12pm (c.t.); Thursday, 9am-11am (c.t.) and Friday 9am-11am (c.t.) in room GM1 (Audi Max) and via live-stream. First regular lecture on Thursday, Oct. 7th 2021.

Currently we plan to hold the course in presence. However, after an announcement in TUWEL we are able to switch between distance learning, hybrid and presence for parts of the course or for the whole course.

Workload estimation (ECTS breakdown): 150 hours = 6 ECTS

  • Lecture time (50 hours)
  • Written tests (6 hours)
  • Presentation of homework exercises (12 hours)
  • Preparation / post-processing of homework (64 hours)
  • Post-processing of lectures and preparation for exams (18 hours)

All information, course material and the assignments for the homework exercises will be provided in the accompanying TUWEL-course.

Examination modalities

To pass the course successfully it is required to pass entry-tests, to solve a certain number of homework exercises, and to get a positive assessment for the presentation of solved homework exercises during classes. In addition, a positive assessment of three written exams is required. All details about examination modalities are presented during the preliminary meeting and can be looked up in the sildes for the preliminary meeting in the TUWEL-course.
