The course is a more advanced explanation of the architecture and function of operating systems and computer networks. An integral part of the topic is a brief introduction to the development of computer systems and computer architecture. A separate section is devoted to the description of computer and network components, network communication and protocols. Attention is also focused on the importance of software development, its categorization and relationship to hardware. The practical part of the course is more focused on higher levels of administration operating systems such as Windows and Unix-like systems.
