Better Computer Engineering elective?

  1. Aug 17, 2015 #1
    Hello all,

    I am currently entering my third year of electrical engineering and have to make a choice to take either:

    Microprocessor Systems: theory and design of microprocessors; semiconductor technologies, architectures, assembly language, software development, input/output design, applications, and interfacing


    Computer organization: structure and organization of computer systems; instruction sets; arithmetic; data path and control design

    I am still undecided which course to take. I can take the other one next fall but for now, I'm hoping to take the course that offers more programming and potentially marketable skills/knowledge to have for internships.

    Any clarification as to the scope of each course, programming languages used, and any other relevant info would be greatly appreciated.

    Computer organization is usually a student's first exposure to assembly language in a computer science curriculum.
