Compiler Construction Course in Mianwali

Course Title: Compiler Construction

Course Overview:
Compiler Construction is a course that focuses on understanding the theory and practice of building compilers for programming languages. Students will learn about lexical analysis, syntax analysis, semantic analysis, code generation, and optimization techniques. The course includes hands-on projects to implement various phases of a compiler.

Course Objectives:

Understand the phases and components of a compiler.
Learn about lexical analysis and parsing techniques.
Study semantic analysis, symbol tables, and type checking.
Explore code generation and optimization strategies.
Gain practical experience in compiler design and implementation.
Develop problem-solving skills in language translation and programming language concepts.
Course Outline:

Introduction to Compilers
