Module.303: Advanced Linux System Programming


Linux System Programming is an art of writing programs on a Linux system such that the programs interact with the OS kernel (Linux) and used its features for facilitating applications, networks or devices. System programming could also be used to configure, maintain and upgrade the existing software, machine or tools for the same. When System programming is done to create or configure networks/protocols, it is called network programming.

Training Objective:

Linux System Programming, "A Project based Training Program" is designed to ensure that students of Engineering College  or working professionals should have the skills needed to deal with the challenges involved in real-world projects involving Linux based system and network programming to meet the needs of industries both today and in the future.


  • Education: ​B E, B Tech. MCA persuing or passout
  • ​Proficency in C programming, able to use Linux OS, Shell Scripting using Bash
  • A prior knowledge of a basic system commands, general understanding about operating system concepts will be helpful.


The Duration of training would be 15 working days. There would be:

  • 15 Classroom Sessions of 2 hours each
  • 20 Lab Sessions of 4 hours each
  • 110 hours of Training
