PRESENTATION:

The purpose of an operating system is to provide an operating environment in which users can perform their tasks in an adequate and effective way. the figure of an administrator who knows in depth both the operating system and the needs of the users is mandatory to make it possible. It is a doubly complicated task because it requires both advanced technical knowledge of the machine and good skills for interpersonal communication.

This subject will introduce the conceptual bases and techniques applied to manage and get performance from the computer systems in order to meet the needs of its users. 

PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCES ACQUIRED IN THE SUBJECT:

General programme competences G05 Capacity to adapt to different environments while being positive and optimistic, orienting your behaviour towards the achievement of goals.
G08 Ability to communicate effectively about different matters in a variety of professional situations and with the different media available.
G09 Capacity to make decisions impartially and rationally.
G10 Critical and analytical capacity when assessing information, data and courses of action.
Specific programme competences E03 Capacity to recognise the technical principles and apply the appropriate practical methods satisfactorily to analyse and solve engineering problems.
E04 Capacity to maintain an open mind to innovation and creativity within the framework of the engineering profession.
E11 Capacity to remain up-to-date in the technological and business worlds in the area of information and communication technologies.
E13 Capacity to identify, assess and use current and emerging technologies, considering how they apply in terms of individual or organisational needs.
E17 Capacity to identify and analyse user needs with the intention of designing effective, usable IT solutions which can be incorporated into the user's operating environment.
