I worked as a Graduate Student Instructor (GSI) for this course. As a GSI, I helped Prof. Thomas Wenisch and it was my pleasure to observe his great teaching skill. Specially, I was really inspired by his technique of guiding student research projects. My responsibilities included two programming assignment demonstration, providing helpful hints regarding the assignments, grading programming assignments and exams, and conducting office hours.

In this course, we tried to cover some introductory topics on digital communication. Starting with a brief review on Fourier Transform, we learned the sampling theorem, pulse code modulation, and few other techniques of digital modulation. For more details, please visit the course website.
In this course, our concentration was concepts and structures of modern operating systems, process communication, memory management, and file systems. Our students completed two hands-on assignments for the the course namely multi-level paging implementation with translation lookaside buffer (following least-recently-used replacement policy) and FAT file system implementation.

In this course, we studied all the essential components of a modern compiler. We investigated lexical analysis, syntax analysis, semantic analysis, run-time environments, code generation, and code optimization. In labs, our students implemented a full-fledged compiler with the tools like Lex and Yacc. For more details, please visit the course website.
In this course, my concentration was microcontrollers. I tried to cover all the basic things of programming ATmega microcontroller in this course. This was really a memorable course for me as this was my first experience with teaching. For more details, please visit the course website.
