The course provides information on the operating system architecture and the features of process management, memory management, device drivers, file systems, networking, security. All features are shown on contemporary operating systems, implementation of selected features is practiced while creating an educational operating system. Note for combined study programs: the course requires activity during semester.

The course includes tests and practical assignments, graded on a percentage scale. The grading reflects correctness and for practical assignments additional evaluation criteria (documentation, design, style). Course credit requires getting at least 50 percent points in all graded aspects, the overall grade is determined from the point average (minimum 50 for "good", 70 for "very good", 85 for "excellent"). Given that an essential course credit requirement is systematic work during the semester, retakes are not possible.
