Faculties and centres
The subject "Computer Engineering" (CE) is part of the group of subjects focused on Computer Architecture, among which are "Computer Fundamentals", "Computer Structure" and "Computer Architecture", from previous courses and whose contents are an essential basis for CE. From a historical perspective, a technological evolution is followed that begins with the subject "Computer Architecture" where complex architectures that incorporate different degrees of parallelism (in their majority at the level of instruction) and that form the base of the high performance architectures that are studied in CE. In the present subject, different high performance architectures are analyzed in depth, and also their main characteristics, programming, and their evaluation mechanisms.
Specific Competences (CE)
The general objective is to make the student understand the importance of high performance architectures, understood as architectures that incorporate high levels of parallelism. To achieve this general objective, the following specific sub-objectives are proposed:
