A project-oriented course for advanced undergraduate and graduate students is described for simulating multiple processor cores. Simics, a free simulator for academia, was utilized to enable students to explore computer architecture, operating systems, and hardware/software cosimulation. Motivation for including this course in the curriculum is provided along with a detailed syllabus and an assessment demonstrating its successful impact on the students. © 2011 IEEE.
