An excellent course provided by phenomenal professors! Everything is broken down into simple, easily understandable portions, and leaves you with a clear idea how to proceed to solve a given problem.
This was so much fun, so satisfying and I learned a lot. I'm a software engineer. We do so much work in high-level languages that it's great to be reminded how computing machinery gets the job done.

A Very useful and inciting course based on one of the great inventions by man. Got my curiosity related to computers satisified with this course.
By David L•
Amazing course, I really enjoyed it, I recommend to all who wish to understand better about the computational architecture from its foundation.
By Yao-Ting L•
I think this is one of the BEST class on coursera.
Instructors use a very efficient and easy way to teach the essence of computer architecture.

This was a great course! To go from building basic logic gates to writing an assembler for a computer that I built, in less than 6 weeks, wow!
By Ian W•
Wow what an amazing course, very good lectures, very good curriculum. One of the best courses I've taken even including my 5 years at college.
it is an execllent course, full of joy.
and I recommed the author to develop a more deep courses cover a modern cpu design and a unix like os

As a seasoned programmer I took the course with my 16 years old son and we both got a deep low-level knowledge and an amazing experience.
By Antoine N•
It was a great experience building a computer hardware from first principles. I am wondering if I can build this architecture on an FPGA@
By Mathias D•
I had a great time and some sleepless nights in this course. I was able to refresh old knowledge and gain a lot of new detail knowledge.
By Dean P•
I learned a lot. from how a computer is built to actually making one myself. i hope i can learn more in the second course in the series.

This is a concise overview of computer science. If you could only take one course in this whole field. This would be the course to take.
By Vaishnavi C•
A must do course for every Computer Science Engineer!! Wonderful course. Well structured and very well simplified to suit any learner.
By Tiago D S•
Absolutely incredible course! The simplicity and ingenuity of each step guide you through the process of creating a complete computer!
By Matthew G•
Great course to understand how the computer "black box" works at a fundamental level. Looking forward to the 2nd half of this course!
By Nicholas L•
One of the best courses on here! Very well done, with visible rewards for your efforts.
My best wishes go to the authors of the course
By Trang L H•
A very challenging but rewarding course. Give you a hand-on experience about low level machine language and how they're all connected
By Simon J•
The course is excellent. Well structured, well paced. It taught someone who has been in the industry for many years some new tricks.
By Wilson R d A•
Amazing course, with the perfect ratio between depth and abstraction. For me the computer is no longer a magic box that does tricks.
By Henrique S C•
Fantastic course. I recommend it to anyone who not only want to know how a computer works, but want to build one out of transistors.
By Joao C•
Really loved doing this course, I finally understood basic concepts of how computers work and having to replicate was so important.
By Richard J•
Excellent course. Highly recommended to anyone into Computers and wishing to gain a deeper understanding of how it 'does its thang'
Awesome well explained course with super cool assignments! <3 it and will take the second part of the course as soon as I have time
