  • Networks
    Protocols, standards, switching, packets, NIC's, routers, the OSI model, and more. This is a very deep dive into how messages are passed between clients on a network.

  • Computer Organization
    How do computers actually work? We learn about the internals of a CPU, the fetch-decode-execute cycle, primary memory, and how binary represents information (plus a lot more).

  • Computational thinking
    The essence of computer science is being able to frame questions and problems in a way a computer can solve them. Think abstractly, sequentially, and computationally as you learn to solve problems algorithmically.

  • Control
    We learn about embedded systems, feedback, and the role of autonomous agents. From GPS to traffic lights to elevators - control systems are everywhere.

  • Modeling & Simulation
    Modeling and simulation (M&S) is the use of models – physical, mathematical, or otherwise logical representation of a system, entity, phenomenon, or process – as a basis for simulations – methods for implementing a model (either statically or) over time – to develop data as a basis for managerial or technical decision making (Reference)
