Other activities and projects related to teaching

The teaching activity of Luca Sterpone has been focused on three fundamental courses for the Bachelor degree (Laurea) in Computer Engineering: Computer Science, Computer Architecture and Operating Systems.

Luca Sterpone actively contributes to the innovation of the courses contents in particular promoting the adoption of state-of-the-art scripting language for the courses of Operating Systems and contributing to the adoption of modern MIPS architecture for the course of Computer Architecture. Besides, since the academic year 2014/2015, Luca Sterpone is formal responsible of the PhD course of Reconfigurable Computing whose content has been personally created and managed. The course is constantly updated with the research advancements in the area of reconfigurable computing and it has an average of 15 PhD students per academic year.
