Operating System Concepts Course in Mianwali

Course Title: Operating System Concepts

Course Overview:
Operating System Concepts is a foundational course that introduces students to the principles, components, and functionalities of modern operating systems. The course covers topics such as process management, memory management, file systems, I/O systems, and system security. Students will gain a deep understanding of how operating systems manage computer resources and support application execution.

Course Objectives:

Understand the role and importance of operating systems in computing.
Learn about process management, including scheduling and synchronization.
Study memory management techniques, including virtual memory and paging.
Explore file systems and storage management.
Understand I/O systems and device management.
Gain knowledge of operating system security and protection mechanisms.
