2. Pre-Requisites

This subject is based on the competences and knowledge acquired in the subjects:

  • Basics of Programming I (1st course)
  • Basics of Programming II (1st course)
  • Computer Structure (1st course)
3. Justification in the curriculum, relation to other subjects and to the profession

An operating system is a program that manages the hardware of a computer and facilitates the interaction between it and the user. It is, therefore, a low-level software element that acts as an interface between high-level software and hardware.

This subject addresses the question of how a program can finally run on a physical system (hardware), and therefore his knowledge is indispensable for a computer engineer. It can be considered as one of the fundamental subjects of the degree and appears in all similar study plans, both national and international.

This subject belongs to a degree qualification that complies with what is specified in the Resolution of June 8th, 2009, of the "Secretaría General de Universidades" that establishes recommendations for the proposal by the Universities of reports of applications for official degrees that lead to the profession of Technical Engineer in Computer Science, and covers the specific competences common to the branch of computing [CO5] Knowledge, administration and maintenance of systems, services and computer applications, and [CO10] Knowledge of the features, functionalities and structure of the Operating Systems and design and implement applications based on their services.

It is, therefore, a compulsory subject in the curriculum, regardless of the specific technology that the student wants to follow. The knowledge acquired in this subject is complemented not only with those obtained in the subjects cited in the section of prerequisites but also with those of other contemporary subjects in the curriculum (Organization of Computers, Real Time and Concurrent Programming ) as well as those of higher-level subjects (Distributed Systems, Operating Systems II).

Total: 100.00% 100.00%  
According to art. 6 of the UCLM Student Evaluation Regulations, it must be provided to students who cannot regularly attend face-to-face training activities the passing of the subject, having the right (art. 13.2) to be globally graded, in 2 annual calls per subject , an ordinary and an extraordinary one (evaluating 100% of the competences).

Evaluation criteria for the final exam:
  • Continuous assessment:
    There will be two controls of theory, exercises and practices throughout the course, as well as a final exam to recover the parts not passed during the course.
    The final grade will be obtained by the weighted sum of all items according to the weights indicated in the table above.
    Conditions:
    - A minimum grade of 35% in theory+exercises and 35% in practices is required to pass the course.
    - The student who does not exceed the minimum grades required in the subject will have a grade no higher than 4.00 even if the overall grade obtained is other, including more than 5.00.

    By default, the student will be assessed by continuous assessment. If you wish to change to non-continuous assessment, you must indicate it through the following link https://www.esiiab.uclm.es/alumnos/evaluacion.php before the end of the term and as long as 50% or more of the subject has not been assessed by continuous assessment.
  • Non-continuous evaluation:
    Tests/activities covering all the evaluation systems indicated in the table above will be carried out.
    The final grade will be obtained by the weighted sum of all items according to the weights indicated in the table.
    In order to pass the course, the same conditions apply as in the continuous evaluation.

Specifications for the resit/retake exam:
Tests/activities covering all the evaluation systems indicated in the table above will be carried out.
In order to pass the course, the same conditions apply as in the ordinary exam.
Specifications for the second resit / retake exam:
Tests/activities covering all the evaluation systems indicated in the table above will be carried out.
In order to pass the course, the same conditions apply as in the ordinary and extraordinary exams.

General comments about the planning: This course schedule is APPROXIMATE. It could vary throughout the academic course due to teaching needs, bank holidays, etc. A weekly schedule will be properly detailed and updated on the online platform (Virtual Campus). Note that all the lectures, practice sessions, exams and related activities performed in the bilingual groups will be entirely taught and assessed in English. Classes will be scheduled in 3 sessions of one hour and a half per week. Evaluation activities or catch-up classes may exceptionally be scheduled in the afternoon.
