This is a great course. I learned tremendously.The only wish is that it is updated with the new materials and the new text book (H&P 6th, planned soon) in the near future.

The course material (lecture slides) for "Computer Architecture" is almost identical to that of the other top universities, so you can be confident in its quality. Professor is clearly experienced in both teaching and the subject. I really enjoyed the lectures. I'm really grateful for the opportunity to take this course. All in all, it was a very satisfying experience.

Nice course, learnt a lot of new information. If practical part is also included in this course, this this course will even be more good.

Quite intense but also quite rewarding. Dr. Wentzlaff's class are captivating and well prepared. The exames are a little bit exhausting, but effectively measure what was learned.
