Prerequisite(s):

OPS235

The course will teach students the creation of error-free and maintainable shell scripts to automate day-to-day UNIX/Linux administrative tasks. Students will examine system scripts such as boot scripts and log generators. Exploring destructive scripts such as Trojan Horses will further the student's understanding of how to protect themselves from malicious programs. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to administer UNIX/Linux systems with much less effort through automation.

Completion

Recognition of Achievement

Upon successful completion of the program requirements, please submit a Request for Recognition of Achievement Form to the Faculty of Continuing Education and Training. There is no cost for this and your Recognition of Achievement will be mailed to you.

Facilities

Students will use networked mid-range and PC computer platforms to access today's leading operating systems (Windows, .Net, UNIX and OS/400 on the AS/400). The College uses SFTP and SSH access modes for some courses to enable work to be done from home. Most programming and networking courses and labs are located at Seneca@York Campus. The programming course students are expected to log 20-30 hours of lab time in addition to classroom time. The lab hours are extensive. Please check with the learning commons or Open Lab for their hours of operation. During evening hours, Continuing Education students have priority over day students; until 7 p.m. on weekdays, full-time students have priority, but Continuing Education students may use facilities that are not occupied. On weekends, Continuing Education and full-time students have equal right to the use of the labs. Your registration receipt is your passport to the lab, although AS/400, UNIX and other users may also require account codes and passwords provided by their instructor. In some courses, students will be required to purchase removable hard drive kits or other hardware. In most courses students will require a USB Drive for storing programming assignments.

Program Changes

The Computer Studies credit program undergoes constant revision to ensure its relevance in today's changing job market. Some courses have been thoroughly revised to reflect technological change. Certain courses and codes may change without prior notice.

Help!

On scheduled Program Information evenings, or by special appointment, you can meet with a Computer Studies coordinator for help in choosing courses. To obtain waivers of prerequisites, and apply for transfer credits, please call 416-491-5050, ext 33025.
